He's looking for clients immediately.. he doesnt want them in his shop because of possible runners :-)
This means that they will be placed directly.

Mom all clean (the shed skins came off like a brownie) and regaining strength



Small ones in the containerbox!




I'm sorry for the picture quality. I dont want to disturb them too much since they are still looking for their mother and to settle down. Dont want them too nervous so they attack each other.

A good home that would be! If you can get them to grow like you grew yourself, you have some pretty groovy monsters in a few years time :-D

The adult female? It is already back in. I took advantage of the confusion she had so she would not stay bad tempered.

They had a slight show off yesterday.

But everything is fine now and they are together back in the same burrow chilling. Love! Its a strong thing.

She is eating heavily to make up for nutrients lost.

Thanks Saleen

They are rather cute though, so I dont mind having them around for a few weeks. After that OUT! Gets too dangerous!

Ok so I had the opportunity to photograph Captain Crunch.

He was walking with three crickets.. two in each pincher and one in the mouth.
Will see if one worked out ok. So Captain Crunch was very blurry.

But I took these. Size 2-3cm about 1/3rd bigger than androctonus bicolor instar 3 scorplings.

The general stance and attitude


This shows how quick they are


I had to dump an entire cricket tub in there (to avoid cannibalism since I saw some skirmishes) with cricket size 4.. thats around 100 -150 crickets, only a few are still alive.

After this only one more update to go (for when they're fully round from eating) before shipping.

Notice the color changes, they almost are exact copies of their parents miniature size


And general attitude again

Almost ready for their journey (holding a cricket). You can tell they hardened up completely since they already have the adult colors, note the black tailtip. Very pronounced.

Yes it is different. The venom and toxicity will be the same.. but the adults will inject A LOT more according to the size difference.

The adults have a telson which is almost as tall as the tail of these youngsters to give an idea.

I'm sorry, I guess I should have said aside from the obvious difference in size. So other than that it's the same. Wow! What would you recommend for the size of a tank for say five of these.

Normally people keep these separated since they are cannibalistic and mostly solitary critters. I'd say 30x30 is big enough for one, I even keep a couple on that small place but i give them leveldifferences so its actually bigger.

I tend to keep them together since they keep and behave well (at this age) together.
If you put two males together as adults, I think you can have trouble or find one or two dead.
