PostSubject: Instar size reference   6/17/2011, 10:23 am

I thought it would be a good idea, that when people have scorpions that moult from an early instar to the next level post their pictures here.

Adding data, like dates, time it took for it to moult etc etc would be nice. Maybe it can represent some kind of value to people that are thinking about keeping a new species, unknown to them what previous experiences were.

Sometimes a scorpion might be in trouble moulting or what not and they can look here, per species how long it took for succesful moults and growth rater as well as looks..

I will kick off here and we will see how it goes!

A. Bicolor Longecarinatus moult took 25 minutes. The environment was not extra humidified.

Fack, its written MaurItanicus....
Btw, even though I have those longecarinatus scorplings from a very acknowledged man regarding scorpions, it seems very strange to me that the Bicolor stay white as you can see in the picture. They are supposed to get pitch black.

The MaurItanicus are supposed to stay darkgrey and even one instar behind they already are pretty dark. This might be something interesting to follow for me.

Idd Mitchell, something is not right about these lol i think they might have been mixed up with centruroides exilicauda... At least this one is too big to get killed by another mauritanicus though :-p

Thats a 2nd instar Androctonus Mauritanicus lol didnt even see it. Thanks dude.
Well yes you can see an AM 2nd instar is bigger than a AB 3d instar. Wonder what the final size difference is going to be. I think, MASSIVE.

Mind you, these are the Androctonus Bicolor Longecarinatus morphs, they already are bigger than Androctonus Bicolor reg morph.

Those white rocks look to be standard aquarium gravel for size reference. Pluto, they look too dark to be C. sculpts in my opinion, but the arms are quite long. Perhaps it'll look more right after a few meals. Freshly moulted specimens always look a bit out of whack.

Street, they come from a respectable man in the hobby. So they prolly are the right stuff. What boggles me is that they are the blackest of the blackest Andros, together with Mauritanicus.

Now you can clearly see the difference of overal coloration between the bicolor and the Mauritanicus (upper right corner as Will noticed).

This difference is really way too big to be normal. Those bicolor stay white very very late into development while the Mauritanicus already has pigmentation. Adult stage, both are dark, with the Mauritanicus being even grey instead of black. Bicolors are pitch black, at least mine are.

Or it is just the species that is out of whack lol.

Will, I will try to put something aside them next time, it was only to show what i2 to i3 look like from a same species. Will do the same when one moults from i3 to i4
You are right though, but I didnt think of it.

That's what I thought when I had my sling. Looked more like an australis' adult coloration. The chela were too narrow though.
