First off is R. junceus! I got 6 of these but one is acting a little funny, so I'm only counting on five. This is the largest one, the rest are an instar or so behind



Next up, Centruroides nigrescens! I got 6 of these too and they're all healthy Very Happy
Just realized, I only have one good shot of the C. nigrescens...Oh well Razz the other's a cell phone pic.



Annnd, H. hottentotta/caboverdensis (what's the correct name?) 15 of these!!! Hopefully enough to get a little breeding group going Very Happy


Last but not least, a little Chaerilus celebensis. I don't know if it's male or female or an adult, but it's going off to telow soon Smile


Here's a size shot of the C. celebensis. US quarter for reference

Those Hottentotta's are Caboverdensis' just like mine, H.H. generally usually have light bodies from what i've seen. It's like the difference between an H.Arizonensis and H.Spadix, pretty much just body color but H.C. are more proven to be parthenogenic, H.H. are disputably parthenogenic too. They are cannabalistic though just an fyi, had about 3 or 4 of mine become sister food Sad.

Thanks for the info!! I'll separate mine pretty soon, I didn't expect to get so many so I kinda scrambled for housing Razz Now I gotta dig out all my little delicups ha. I'll be sure to remember that bit on H. caboverdensis Smile

Yea, had a group colony of 6 siblings to try it out and kept about 16 in seperate containers and what i've seen happen is where there was 6 there is now 2 ( they were well fed) and the individual ones grew twice as fast (no clue why, maybe fighting for food made them eat less so then they grew less?).

I don't know enough about the differences between HH and HC but I can say that the HH I have seen were about that color and were definitely darker than Hottentotta Trilineatus which is what I have and they are very light in color.
You may be correct in that they are HC Chrome but I am not sure if you are thinking of H. Trilineatus instead of H. Hottentotta.

Mmmmm, no dont think so, H.C and H.H are damn near identical just one is light and one is dark, one is 100% parthenogenic and the other might be. I dont really have very much experience with H. trilineatus but I do with both H.H and H.C., and also They look identical to my H. cabs when I first got them.

But then again you could be right and maybe H.C and H.H sometimes look the same as low instars, we'll definitely see in about 2 molts though.

Yes I was more asking a questions as the way I understood the explanation it sounded like my thoughts of the differences between HH and HT where they look the same but HT are definitely the light tan color. Keep the comparo going though as I would like to learn more - I love my Hottentotta's Smile
