Nice, GS!
You seem to keep getting these fat, but healthy scorpions Smile
I've been enjoying all of your videos as they seem to be some of the few quality scorpion videos out there. Very nice birds-eye view of the attack!

Thanks Rene. Yeah they are, i like the black-tipped the most!
I got her a partner who is coming in soon. Hopefully all things goes well as planned Very Happy

Would be cool if you could get them to breed! Is this specie getting as big as parabuthus transvaalicus?

Yeah it'd be awesome to get Liosoma babies Bro.. can't image how the coloring on their tail will be.. hehe
& If i'm not wrong, in most cases, Transvaalicus should mature to be the largest in size in the Parabuthus family.
Thats why they are my favorite! Hope you get yours soon mate. No regrets! Cool

ha ha.. nice choice! With your contacts i wouldn't be surprise if you can get it real soon Very Happy

Btw, the white stuff on the roach is the sand.. probably the "sweat" the roach gave out during its fruitless attempt to avoid being lunch affraid causes the fine sand to stick to it's body.. hehe Twisted Evil

Allready had an offer for 1.1 subadult, but they are a bit pricey so I'm not sure with christmas comming up and all santa

Thought it was mites and was wondering "wouldn't that possibly transfer to the scorpion?" Chin Scratch

What do you mean good name?

I think he means something along these lines. I just stumbled across this and remembered this little debate ...

"Common names: "African Black Tail Scorpion". This species is formerly known as P. liosoma, but Fet et al. (2000) conclude that leiosoma is the original spelling. Acosta & Fet (2005) changed the name back to P. liosoma."

-http://www.ntnu.no/ub/scorpion-files/p_liosoma.php

My guess would be both are acceptable after all I'm stuck typing Vaejovis/Hoffmanius all the time, lol

As my last order of PT's failed miserably I'm thinking about picking 2 or 3 of these up can anyone tell me what size they get up to? I thought I recalled reading some where they get about 3 inches but am not sure :/

Its possible. Both my 5i P. Transvaalicus and Liosoma are roughly of the same size now. Only diff is that Trans has thicker tail.

@thicker tail part Sad

I thought they were a bit smaller but that would be cool if they did get up to the same size. I'll have to order some of those then as consolation. I had always wanted some but just love big black beasties!

I sincerely believe you will get the P.Trans no matter what, just a matter of time Smile
So far the Liosoma i had had much more activity as compared to PTrans, even though after 1-2 weeks after settling down in the enclosure, she is always out every night for a walk. She can be fat but surprisingly agile and i love her black tipped tail!
I think you'll love them too bro Very Happy

Well, just had to share I placed an order with Kenthebugguy again as I pay a little more but am not let down by Ken. I had ordered 4 P. Liosoma Very Happy

They are not supposed to ship until after the holidays and then I'm sure I'll be waiting on a break in the weather. But I have had successful transactions with Ken before and trust his judgment on shipping.
As for the P. Trans I have found another potential resource now courtesy of a good friend on this forum Very Happy.

Soon I will be joining the Parabuthus ranks and in spring some andros in the works too Very Happy Sorry this is all posted here, but it is about the P. Liosoma at this point!!

Yea, I know, but I'm out of money right now, so it has to wait until after christmas Neutral

BTW forgot to mention 25+ Hottentotta Hottentotta aswell! They are freebies with the Parabuthus Liosoma...

It's an asian dealer Wink

We get a lot of snow, and we have maybe 2 months maybe 3 months of summer, but summer here is pretty much sun in one out of 3 days, so isn't much to cheer for!

As for size I found some pictures here that might shed some light on it:

Here it's an adult male Parabuthus Transvaalicus and an Adult Parabuthus Liosoma from egypt:


And here it's the differnce in size between two adult females from egypt and tanzania:


BOTH PICTURES ARE FROM "THE SCORPION FAUNA"!

I must say I'm surprised by the difference in size and from now on I must say that egypt is the version to get Drool

Yea, but the Parabuthus Transvaalicus is a male, so I would say they are roughly around the same size as the one from egypt! the one from tanzania is apparently way smaller, which is surprising to me!
