PostSubject: The Great Guess Challenge!   12/11/2010, 8:27 pm

Hey everyone! I haven't seen a contest come along in awhile, so I decided to start one, based on the often heard question...

"My scorp isn't eating!?!?! What's up?!!?!"

This one is just for kicks, until I have some scorpion related baby-style prize (possibly in my next contest, but more likely, I'll just keep the winners name in a box and contact them if they are interested in any future hetero. scorplings) it's just for bragging rights.

The Senario:

My lovely collections "Hetero. Unknown" (so far her size and behavior has kept most Id'ing down, even on this forum) has not consumed food for 1 month and 3 days.

The Guess Work:

How many days until she gives up her diet and eats something?

Everyone get's one guess (post wisely, whatever you post first is your submission), and I'll keep you posted.

The Plot:

I will attempt a feeding every 3rd day, starting tomorrow at noon (forum time). I will monitor that feeding for 12 hours before removing prey.

Attached is the most recent picture taken (pre-hiding under her water dish), so that speculation on pregnancy and pre-molting might shed some light on her situation for you guessers.

How often will you attempt to feed her? Will you check daily, alternate days, what? Or just on days that people submit as guesses?

I'd hate to submit a guess but not have her offered prey on that day. Razz

Excellent suggestions. Initial post will be edited to include.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

If I interpret your schedule correctly, you'll be feeding on the 12th, 15th, and 18th next week, yes?

If that's the case, my vote is for the 15th, as it's my birthday. cheers

I'll re-guess the 8th (or if you don't attempt to feed on the 8th whatever day that is nearest the 8th that you do attempt)

It's been awhile, but we finally have a day:

On Jan 21st, she finally decided to eat something. Her meal consisted of 1 fat ugly delegged cricket!

Mr. Mordax was the closest underbet (and closest to the actual day)
H. Laoticus was the closest overbet (and included because his first bet was actually the 21st [of december], and I found it amusing)

I think i'll toss both you names in a hat for being good sports if you'd like some Hetero Longs or Hetero Spins, I have two recent gravids from both species (if you want to wait that long, haha!) and if interested, when they pop I can ship some out too you!
