PostSubject: My new Scorps from repticon   7/17/2011, 9:27 pm

My three new additions from repticon last week.

Question: What sex do you think these are?


Androctonus australis











Leiurus quinquestriatus






What is that white stuff on his tail? He acts fine, no odd behavior. Just wondering.


Nice Telson shot





Hadrurus arizonesis

Being shy





What instar do y'all think these are?

Take out your LQ carefully and put it in a clear plastic containter and look underneath, if its pectines look like this /\ it's a male, if the look like this /``\ its a female.
gap=female
no gap=male
It looks like a female from the body shape thoughbut look underneath.
The white stuff on it's tail is poop, they are real good poopers Smile.

Can't really tell on you A.a

I'm with Chrome on this.

What he said I find to be the easiest way to sex L.Q's.

Nice pics Bro, pic 3 def leads me to believe it to be female. Can't help to much with your A.a but I heard the gap or overlap way works with most Buthids.

Good Luck with them and nice new additions

Pectine counts are accurate for Androctonus australis. Get yourself a nice clear business card case to put it in. They snap shut and you can flip it on it's back to take a clear photo. Blow it up on the computer and count away. 30-38 is male, 22-29 is female.

Also, I'd advise only keeping your Haddy in that setup temporarily. They are happiest when they can burrow. Get yourself some excavator clay to mix with regular sand. 1 part clay dust to 3 parts sand. Put a good five or six inches in a tank and wet it down. Mold in some hills and place a flat rock or wood chunk in so that the edge overhangs a hill. Place a small dimple in under the rock. Set this aside to dry thoroughly under a heat lamp. When it's dry and you put your scorp in there it'll happily and readily excavate a burrow under the rock.

Nice scorpions you have there! I should be acquiring some A.a. this week I hope...

I think that the white is or dirt, or a small puncture in its exo resulating in a droplet of blood mixed with white sand. It is nothing to worrie about though.

I think your australis is a very fat fattailed female (not a typical torpedo shaped male)...
The tergites are very close to each other, so it's not an overfed male.

Cant tell for the others.

The Haddy is going to get his own enclosure once I can afford another 10 gallon that I can half off.
