PostSubject: Scorpion Studies   1/20/2011, 3:27 am

Sup guys, been checking this forum alot for scorpion information. im fascinated by these critters and iv had my own Empress for about a month and a half now. I think shes gravid!


What i was wondering was, Are there any behavioural studies that have been done on scorpions i could find online? or perhaps a study of scorpion pregnancy (stages, etc)? anything really. like I said, they fascinate me!

Hey, welcome to the forum. Someone should be along shortly with some good info for you. Otherwise just search around on here and you will be sure to find what you are looking for. I myself have never had an emperor but I do have some Asian Forest Scorpions (H. Spinifer) that are similar when I get home from work I will look for a write up one of the guys did on here on their life cycle and post the link here, hopefully that should help.

I think this is the one, hope it helps. Alex who answered my request is super helpful and knows his stuff with Heterometrus.

I do have some Barks too but they are just slings now and too little to see who active they really are. Mine are C. Sculturatus. I do believe there are a fair amount of people on here that have had experience with various barks.

Actually I have some B. Jacksoni too but they hide all the time.

Anyways, hope this helps

If you can get your hands on The Biology of Scorpions by Gary Polis, it's a great resource. Other than that, see if you can find someone at your local university who can hook you up with scientific journals. Very Happy I know that when I was at OSU I had free access to a lot of articles.

I'll try to find the link again or if you just google that book you might find it. There is a site out there that has this book on PDF and you can buy the PDF for like $5. Otherwise the book in it's most used and beat up form will cost you an arm and a leg as well as your first born! I will have to find it and buy it as was my intention but forgot Sad.

I had asked the same question a while back and that is the most recommended response I received as well.

They also had a copy at OSU's library, so you might check whatever local university you can.

Edit: Hmm, two university-related posts in one thread. Dang, I miss living in a college town. Razz
