Here`s my current scorpion collection. Kind a hard to get any scorpions besides from P.imperator and Hetrometrus sp. here in Norway Razz

Androctonus australis








Androctonus crassicauda






Androctonus mauritanicus




Hottentotta jayakari




I also have some new Hottentotta judacius and Hotentotta minax, my my camera is broken at the moment, so I will have to wait with pictures of them.

Regards
Robin

Those would be B. dubia cockroaches . . . I always think they look like little trilobites.

Thanks everybody Smile

I feed them Blapica dubia. I use a Nikon D40 with the std. 18-55mm objective at the moment.

Today i`m going away to this little Critter Expo in Danmark , I hope to get some new scorpions and other arachnids as well Smile

Thanks!
I don`t, I just listen to what the dealer tells me Razz
I belive A.bicolor is black, and more "metallic" than A.mauritanicus. A.crassicaude are usually brownish i think.
BUT, i`m not the one to ask about this. Haven`t keept enought individuals to be sure about what i stated above.

Hi,

usually coloration is not the best way to ID a scorpion. To tell for sure you have to look at the granulations on the lateral side of the metasoma. Alex Tietz/Nazgul posted about it on the German board. If you don't understand German you can at least look at the pictures he posted. If you compare the granules on the metasoma you see the difference.

Difference between Androctonus bicolor, A.crassicauda and A.mauritanicus

Simply beautiful specimens, Robin. Smile

Don't A. bicolor's legs appear lighter closer to the tarsi? Or am I mistaken? That's what I've noticed different about it from A. mauritanicus, and as stated, A. crassicauda usually appears more brown.

. . . Of course, some people tell me that colors are a bad way to distinguish species . . .
