What do you think?
Male and female been living communally for about 3 months now.







I've pulled the male out just in case but left the female in there as she's settled.
I hardly ever see the female, she's always deeply hidden inderneath the sand/ bentonite "cave".

Does it eat a lot and is it in the adult stage Pelo?
It seems to me like a moult incoming because the tergites, EVERYWHERE are very far apart.
A gravid one only has like the back end being swollen up, and below.

But I don't want to ruin your plans or ideas so you should really check if it is an adult or not. If it is, then yes probably a gravid fatty.
If it is not, I would vote a moult incoming..

She's adult, doesn't eat a massive amount but I was thinking the pair hadnt been together long enough for her to get that size if she was gravid.
I'm thinking moult as well so not getting excited about her.

3 months together is plenty she prolly IS gravid. but i don't think the fatness now has to do with her being gravid.

Lol, just prodded her with a small paint brush. She's only a Haddy so easier to control.

Hmm should try that sometime. Tweezers and picking them by the tail only makes them enraged Very Happy

To me all scorpions are the same when angry.. so it's just some species hurt more when you get to meet the telson affraid
