PostSubject: Heterometrus spinifer Breeding Project   12/20/2010, 11:06 am

Hey guys,

I suspect that my Heterometrus Spinifer is gravid but i do not eliminate the possiblity of just fatness.
She is a full grown adult and has been separated from a communal setup for 2-3 months due to her aggressiveness towards other spinifers.

Pse comment if you think she is simply Fat or Gravid.
Any insights will be great! Thanks Smile

Edit: Video title updated to Gravid status. Thanks to you guys for the confirmation Smile










Ps: Yes she (Top left) is the one who ate her tankmate few months ago.

Gravid.

Make sure you keep her nice and humid, and give her a good hiding place.

BTW Bix, it's apparently the scorpion's heart you see through the membrane. I always thought it was the nerve cord as well until reading The Biology of Scorpions. Smile

A friend of mine had an H. longimanus with roughly 50 young, so it's possible.

Not yet bro. Base on my rough estimation.. now could be about 4-6mths along the gestation period.
Well first thing i did when i return from work everyday (without fail).. is to take a torch and shine in her burrow for a sec, looking out for white spots.. lol

I believe quite a few species can live together in harmony while being provided with the right enclosure conditions, ample hides and food. There could be a higher success rate for communal adults settings as they don't have to go through molts which makes them vulnerable.
