Thanks for your kind words. The video and pictures are taken with my camera phone (iphone4)..
Video is in HD and good in quality but picture wise.. have to depend on light conditions..
DSLR with macro lens will have more decent output/control.. aiming for one soon.. heh

Look forward to see more of yours' and everyone else' too Smile

Scott Land:

Awesome pix, thanks for putting this up GS! Very Happy

I can't wait for mine to get here. I'm curious though about their venom. I try to do as much research as possible prior and I find a lot on what to do and not to do with stings and that anti venom should only be used when definitely experiencing a severe case of scorpionism. My main concern is that I'm not sure if there is any anti venom anywhere in the States. Should an accident happen the hospital would be left to do the best the can at best case scenario. Is there anything known about potentially acquiring anti venom to keep on hand and take with to a trip to a hospital in the event that the worse case scenario does happen?

Has anyone done any research on anything related to this? It is my impression that horses are commonly used for anti venom and they are injected with small amounts of venom at a time to build up certain cells that are resistant to this particular type of venom and the anti venom is then made from them as taking small amounts of blood from an animal this size does not harm it in anyway.

I'm really concerned with my son being 4 and 35-40 pounds. I have the viv's all set up already and they have padlocks on them, they are above his eye level and I plan on making some plastic screens to slope up over the front of the Viv in the event of flicking venom. I know the latter is not always the case but everyone warns of the possibility so I'm just trying to cover my bases. I am also trying to either build or purchase another large locking display case to place the vivariums in so they will be behind 2 locks actually at some point. My son is great about not touching but I want to cover all my bases twice for his sake. I wouldn't stress half as much for myself as I'm 6' and 215-225 pounds.

I have read that these are a 3 on the toxicity scale which is the same as my Hottentotta Trilineatus but I have also been reading that because of the size of PT's they inject a lot more venom making problems that much more serious.

If there are any references you could point me towards it would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone could share precautions they have taken it would be really cool and definitely appreciated as well Very Happy

Awesome pics too by the way, I'm going to watch your vid now! Very Happy Really I could resist any other species but PT's are just so darn cool looking!

**Had to add that your vids are awesome! I liked the Bicolor too and I'm even more excited for my own PT's now too!

Hey mate, thanks for yr comments on my pics/vids.

Can surely sense your love for your family for putting in the efforts to do the research.
I have no idea about where to get anti-venom to store as backup but am surely interested to get one too.

As for securely them, i do "double tank" them and keep my room locked whenever i am not at home as an added measure.

Btw i really love to own a few Hottentotta Trilineatus too.. man they are neat looking!

There another thing i would like to share.. not so much on security but i have d.i.y a split tank for my P. Trans yesterday Very Happy

Its more of a space saver as my room is quite small to house my growing collections. Plus the cost of getting a ready made split tank in my neighborhood's pet store seemed to be overpriced..

I'll be posting up pictures in my next post to share with you guys.

Awesome, thanks for sharing! Those dividers are super clean looking! And the scorps of course are beautiful.

Unfortunately I'm still waiting for arrival so my P Trans tanks are empty Sad But this is the split tank I set up for two of them. I ordered 3 as they are unsexed in hope to better my breeding pair odds and have another 5 gallon set up for the 3rd one. Below are some pictures of those. The 1st two pix are of the 2nd tank I did like this and is a 10 gallon split. The 3rd one is actually a split 5 gallon I use for my 2 mature H/V Spinigerus.

I just bought a sterilite container and cut the bottom to size and then used the aqaurium silicone to glue it in place. Not as clean but cheap and easy. I'd like to look at a cleaner solution in the future and may try your method GS, thanks again for sharing.

Thanks for the heads up, I noticed that with the baby H/V Spinigerus, they climbed a bit but never to the top and were removed right away anyway. The adult V. Spins don't even try to climb and they've been in there for a good few months. That piece of sterilite does not go all the way to the top as it was some scrap I had laying around. The PT tank however turned out a bit cleaner and I used a piece of sterilite from a container I bought explicitly for this purpose. So the silicone is done a little smoother and cleaner and the divider itself runs right up to the inner lip of the lid on the critter cage. So there is not much room between that lip and the screen also. The PT's I'm waiting for are mature and I planned on trying to breed them so at least they will be full size and a rather large scorp at that.
I will keep any eye on them though for sure, thanks for the heads up Very Happy

Thank you, I try to keep it as natural as possible, for some odd reason that appeals to me a little more than decorations, and of course I want my pets to be happy and content Very Happy

I appreciate the complement it definitely makes me feel better to know that I'm on the right track for a species, so feed back is definitely definite welcome of any kinds.
