First feeding of my new scorps!

0.1 H mysorensis eating a Sun beetle larvae

0.1 H mysorensis eating a blatta lateralis cockroach


My female swammerdami also got a sun beetle larvae but she dissappeared into her cave before i could take a picture!

This mysorensis was too busy trying to escape



The male mysorensis wont open his claws and when i gave him his larvae he just started punching it. It looked like it wanted to kill it but it couldn't! Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

POLYPED.DE is the worst dealers i have ever dealt with!! Shocked

My shipment of 1.1 hierodula membranacea and 1.1 pandinus viatoris was the worst i have ever seen.

Both mantids were dead and very bad packaged and one scorpion was missing!!! Shocked

Luckily one scorp was still alive...

Horrible packaging...


No scorp..

0.1 Pandinus viatoris


Do anyone know how big viatoris are when they're fully grown?

No, they were in a cardboard box with bubble plastic too. But the mantids only got a strip of paper in their plastic box, as you can see in the picture. They most likely got shook to death... Sad

This blows

My milkweed bugs are breeding like crazy now Very Happy

Dude those Milkweed bugs live here. They are EVERYWHERE during the summer. You can find colonies of literally thousands of them crawling all over each other. Nothing will eat them either. I tried to feed them to my black widow. She just ties them up and drops them into the bottom of the tank. My house got infested by those one time. It was worse than cockroaches. Do not let them escape!!!!!

Actually the ones here are Boxelder bugs. They look almost identical, but aren't the same.

The 1-4i's are actually GREAT food and all my animals take them in a heartbeat. Even my oscars loves them. The adults tastee like [doodoo] tho.

They are very good feeder animals for mantids because they climb everywhere :spidey:

I think the milkweed bugs and the boxelder bugs are closely related. They are both called "teger" in Norway.

Actually i would not mind keeping them so if anyone would like to catch some for me and tell me what they eat i would happily pay for the postage and handling Smile

Never owned millipedes before so this could be fun:) Planning on breeding them Smile

I found that the species name actually is Spirostreptus gregorius! Smile

Handling one of mine:
