Very nice, finally got that missing maurus! Have you had a go at sexing them yet? I really want to know what mine is so I can try get another of the opposite sex but have none to compare it to.

Rene Shocked interested in a non DWA scorp! Very Happy

Swammerdami looks huge compared to cricket tub!

Thank you!! Have no idea of the sex of the maurus's I'm afraid I did have a look but all look the same to me lol, and the swammerdami is quite large a little on the podgy side too I would say (fat or pre moult I guess)

Am very happy though think that takes our count to 17 now since the end of august lol ( we are not obsessed .... Honestly!)

Ok then. Maybe we should get pectine pics of all 4 of the scorpios up and compare them. Do you think these are adults? I'm not sure, at times I think mine is but I suppose there's no real way of knowing.

If the telson is anything to go by in swammerdami i'd say premolt, but im not sure of this.

And that's a discussion is for Scorpaholics Anonymous! Very Happy

Ah, don't make me think of it Shocked

I'd say around 500£ maybe a bit less! But I'm selling out of a few now, but only to make room for others that I find more interesting and get a little diversity in them!

Nice scorps! Very uncommon to get an H. swammerdami in the states, so you beat us to that one Smile I've been wanting to get one for a while now due to the size they get.

I think it's between the two for the world record but swammerdami is generally larger

^That pic is forced perspective; the scorpion is a lot closer than the guy's head (Cacoseraph from AB, nice fellow, likes 'pedes), giving the illusion of the scorp being huge.

P. imperator has a "jungle" morph that isn't commonly available in the hobby but can get absolutely enormous. There's also the incredibly rare Pandinus dictator which grows even larger.

H. swammerdami seem to have been readily available in the UK for a couple of years. One of our members (who hasn't been around in a long time Sad) successfully bred a pair.

Galapoheros from AB, now that guy has had some large emps and I think he's trying to exclusively breed large ones.

We been thinking about trying an experiment, we wonder what would happen if you used pure oxygen in a tank ( would be sooo expensive to do but interesting is possible) to see how large one would get

Edit* sorry was half asleep when I wrote that, Can't use pure oxygen, you just increase the amount of oxygen in the air
