Hello all.

Here's some pics of my Heterometrus madraspatensis. I brought an adult male and adult female from the SEAS show about 6 months ago with the intentions of attempting to breed them. I planned to let them settle in seperate enclosures and get them in a well fed state first. I didn't even get a chance to put the pair together before the female started looking very gravid. So she was definetly gravid before I got her.

Here's a couple of pics of the female when she was looking very gravid a few weeks ago. Also she was coming to sit in the heat alot more regulary than usually. I've noticed this as a sign of being gravid before with my H. spinigerus.



Doing a headstand! Very Happy



This is how she looked a few days before birth if you can make it out.



And now for the baby pics, she hasn't left the burrow so they're not amazing but you get the idea. I counted 15 definite but possibly more so I'd say 15-20. Place your bets now! Laughing















Take it easy.

Thanks everyone, appreciated!

A beautiful species to me too H. really feisty too, I love 'em.

There's definitely a couple there for ya Bex, I weren't sure if you'd even want any more madras lol Yeah I'm well happy! I'm sure your bubbas will be munching in no time Very Happy

Pluto, Bex, very optimistic guesses lol I've got my hopes on 18-20 too, but I don't want to jump the gun it's still at a crucial stage. Lets hope this brood goes better than my last or it could be 0.

May be a little grown on baby here for you soon Shanos Very Happy

Cheers GS! Yeah she dug the tunnel herself, this is my males but they're matching enclosures, burrows go in the cork tubes down to the bottom corner with a nice little window for me lol

The lighting was kind of harsh on the baby pics because it was through the glass and a quick snap because didn't want to disturb her too much.

Male assuming his usual position.

Cheers fellas, good luck on the Madras Lottery Laughing

You'll be able to get quite a colony on the go in the future Bex Very Happy I wonder how communal these really are, you got babies still together with no problems right? Yeah they do seem to grow quick for Hets. they also put they food away well, I can hand feed my male lol. About to chuck you an email.

Congrats Jay.
Definitely one of my favorite Heterometruses. I saw one on sale in a local forum today, the price was way off though. Around 55 GBP (according to this days rate) for a sub. I regret I didn't order them the last time together with the martensii. Well, later Very Happy

Thats good to hear Bex, If I get enough I'll give it a try. How comes you split 2 from the 5, I know there was a reason just can't remember why.

Cheers Dolby mate, dedfinitely an awesome species I'd recommend to anyone. Wow that is very overpriced even for an adult gravid female Laughing

Yep, locally there are not much species available. But I generally order a breeding pair for that much from my usual supplier. Don't know when his next trip will be though. Hopefully soon, a I'm still waiting for my haddy aswell.
But my collection should be getting a jump soon though Smile

they outgrew the tank they was sharing and we needed it for abother ascorp but the only ones we had at the time was 3 small and a meduim so dished them out 1 each to the small and two to the medium lol...also was worried about one of them, seems to be acting strangly and had wondered if it was injured by another one but they are all doing good Smile may put them back together one day as a trial Smile

Sweet mate, what you got in mind? I really like your M. martensii, any joy with the breeding on them, they mated didn't they?

Ah right, that's good to hear Bex, couldn't remember if it was down to their feisty ways.

Just been checking in on the babies and they have all molted to 2i now, suppose it won't be long until they are off the back now.

Jay, I've got 10 Buthus occitanus scorplings on the way, should be here until the end of the week. If allgoes well (not too many DOA), I might go for some M.caucasicus or Hottentottas from this same guy (Testoterosaurus or someth. like that).

My female martensii passed away a couple of weeks ago. I heard afterwards from a couple of friends they've had female emps, hets and several arid species die while gravid after mating while still sub-adults. Sounds strange though and I don't believe this theory that they can't give birth as subs and die in the process, but if it is true, that would explain what happened to mine.

So now I'm trying to hunt down 2-3 adult martensiis for my males.

In the meanwhile, as I just couldn't wait any longer, got back from my cricket trip yesterday with a P. cavi too Very Happy


I can see your madras are getting some coloration too already Smile Hope you'll be able to get to count them really soon.
And if they're too much for you, I'll take a couple off your hands Very Happy lol
