Doesn't exactly look like I got a 100% chocolate morph yield from this brood, but these guys aren't fully hardened yet. I keep mine in semi elaborate enclosures with many hiding spots that babies can become lost, so I pick them off a few days after they molt to second instar if I manage to drop the ball and forget to separate her out into a private birthing box prior to her giving birth.

Delicious!


I also recently discovered a second chocolate morph jacksoni with babies on her back. Maybe it's about time to start working on a large hive enclosure...

Update: Chocolate Babycurus jacksoni gave birth to 4 typicals out of over 20 offspring, so I'm getting to 100% yield. I guess I might as well produce typicals as well. Speaking of Babycurus...

Odonturus dentatus with her offspring. These are very close in lineage with Babycurus. In fact, they're often times mislabeled as Babycurus jacksoni. To be honest, I can't tell the babies apart until about 5i if I don't label them


The shape of the tail as well as the larger subacular tooth are good ways to tell the two species apart. Also, the adults have a defined stripe down their bodies whereas Babycurus jacksoni looses most of their stripe on the way to maturity


These guys almost have a club shaped tail like the one seen in Rhopalurus males


Enjoy!

Sadly, I'm one of very few people who have actually dedicated time to breeding this species. I good amount of breeders have been turned off from this species due to the superficial similarity to that of Babycurus jacksoni. It wouldn't surprise me if I were to find out that I am only person working with this species. Now, grant it I rarely find a scorpion species that I don't like to work with, but I really like working with this species.
I actually got a female zero originally from a shop here in the states. I was looking for another male jacksoni to add some genetic diversity within my culture. I knew immediately when I pulled her out of the vial what species she was and the gender as well. She produced 3 broods for me without ever being with another dentatus in my care. The 3 broods she produced now occupy the same space in a 5.5 gallon habitat where they have many fun times dropping spermatophores, eating small animals and generally staying reclusive. I'm really excited that I have been able to get another chance to see their life cycle. I will eventually expand these guys to a 10 gallon communal culture like a good majority of my communal cultures.

They may look the same as B.jacksoni but how are their personalities compared with each other? I like to think every scorpion species has a personality trait that only they have.

For someone who looks at scorpions quite frequently such as ourselves, they really don't look a whole lot like jacksoni past the early stages. I believe I have a pic or two posted on previous pages in this thread.

As far as personality is concerned, they seem to be a good deal more nervous, which seems hard to top if you've worked with Babycurus sp. They also appear to communicate a good deal less while still exhibiting social behaviors such as hide sharing, food sharing and offspring tolerance to other members of the species. They're also smaller overall and tend to not tolerate arid habitats quite as well as jacksoni and appear to be less prone to mycosis.

Its always a good thing to have a few more nervous species in ones collection as it keeps you on your toes Very Happy
Some of my more nervous species has taught me to never understimate scorpions even if you think you are knowing what you are doing.

Heterometrus petersii with 1st instars

This is the second time I've gotten a brood from this species, but the first time I didn't disturb her with pictures and her brood was quite small by comparison to this one. This is the size of their broods that should come with being in optimum conditions for the full term of their gestation. I know we don't see too many long term captive broods, which is why I decided to share. Enjoy!

Thanks, guys. I've really taken a liking to this species and the genus as a whole. You don't see too many deliberately breeding this genus in the us hobby, so I decided to take a stab at it and I'm really liking the results. I may try to get my hands on more Heterometrus and other scorpionidae here in the near future. I've dealt with mostly buthids for the entire time I've been breeding scorpions, but breeding this species came as a pleasant change.

The rotation has come around again and now it's time for some of my recently matured adults to produce for the first time.

Sean I envy your collection I always wanted to do a B.jacks communal set up with both regular and choloates. The O.dentatus are really cool looking too, I know pictures don't do them justice and they end up looking just like the b.jacks but they're much prettier in person.

Thanks! I like to think that I'm doing some good by producing these little guys. I added the brood size for each one of those pictures just in case anyone was curious of how many were in each brood.
