PostSubject: possibly gravid? or premolt?   5/23/2011, 2:42 pm

ok, when i bought my V. confusus, i asked if they were adult, the guys said that they may molt one or 2 more times but ha said that once you breed them they usually don't go past that instar. so i'm wondering, is it possible my sub-adult female EMPEROR is gravid? or in premolt? i know she's a sub because her telson is a lot lighter than the other one's but other wise she is about the same size..thanks for anyone who can shed light on this

I believe female scorpions can get gravid from the moult just before the final moult?

It varies with species. I've heard of it with B. jacksoni, but not emps.

well we'll see..everyone seems to think she's gravid though and she's definitely getting more defensive and less tolerant or me doing anything in the tank...course i guess that could be pre-molt behavior never had am emp molt in my care..

but if she IS gravid, how will i know when to remove the other scorp from the tank?? she's pretty fat, but the pics i've seen of gravid scorps looked like they were going to POP lol
