PostSubject: How old/big before imps breed?   7/18/2011, 10:43 pm

Several weeks ago I bought a large male from a flea market, he's doing great. I have since bought a female from Petco. She is fully colored, but only about 3/4 the size of the male. How old or what size do they have to be before they breed? I keep their enclosure at about 85 deg, 80-85%hum. At first they really didn't get along. I think the female stung the male. Things are a little better now and although they occasional sleep in the same hide, they spend most of their time in separate hides.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Post some pictures, that will be the easiest way to determine the age. If you can, get a picture of their underside too, to determine they are in fact male and female. Not very many people in pet stores and such know what they are talking about when it comes to arachnids.
I have seen a lot of Asian Forest Scorpions labeled as Emperors, and vice versa. As well as my A. Versicolor Tarantula, was labeled as A. Metallica.

From what I've read Emperors can vary greatly in size depending on where they are from, or just from genetics.

This is Negro's stuff:Male


This is Negra's stuff: Female


Please correct me if I'm wrong!!!
BTW they both have the same colored telson. So, they are sub-adults.

From what I understand, they both are 1-2 molts from maturity.
