PostSubject: Mating dance question   5/8/2008, 10:01 am

basically i want to know if the A. mauritanicus i have is trying to mate with a cricket Suspect

every time i try to feed it it does not try to attack or kill the black cricket i leave with it instead it starts to do a strange dance. first it lifts its front off they floor a bit and tickles its own stomach with its front two legs while shuffling around in a semi circle, it then abruptly stops and stands motionless absolutely still for ten seconds and it flicks its tail first left then right about 4 or 5 times it then repeats the whole dance again from the beginning and continues doing this while the cricket is present.

please is this normal or is my A. mauritanicus a freak????? affraid

^Not exactly a good solution to the problem.

Umar, as far as I can tell, your scorpion is weird . . . none of us have apparently seen anything like that in our experiences.
