Hi!
I keep 4 Babycurus jacksoni in a 30*30*30 cm/12*12*12" enclosure. Yesterday I friend of mine noticed something he belived was fighting.When he told me, and I checked, everything was fine.
I was just wondering if this might have been an actuall fight, part of courtship or just a little argue to settle dominance?

They have a lot of hides, and I give them plenty of food.
The actions he witnessed was one scorp grabbing the other ones pedipalp.

Regards
Robin

Yeah, probably mating -- a lot of people new to the hobby mistake it for fighting.

I recall you posting a lot of great pictures; were any of those of your jacksoni? They're fairly easy to sex when mature:


Note the male's pedipalps.

lol!

I know a bit about them. After seeing the difference between males and females of the instar where males are mature, and when the female matured an instar later, I feel confident sexing adult specimens.
