do they aim for important parts, like eyes, or is it just spray and pray?

Spray and pray. It's more of a flick though, so they can cover a wide area with a flick. get some goggles just in case, and don't rub venom into open wounds or anything silly like that.

I just read some species of Parabuthus hiss by running their stinger over the first 2 segments of their tail. Have you ever heard them hiss Pluto?

I'd advise against getting spitters in that case what with all your open sores and picked scabs. Accidents can happen...

Tweaker. LOL!

Anna, I never heard them hiss. They just lift their tails high up (and I mean high, since they are one of the biggest buthid. Only Parabuthus villosus is bigger, but they are less macho. I like these because they are macho lol) and they start clawing, as if they are feeling air movements from everywhere. They are pretty much 1/3rd times biggr bigger than Androctonus australis.

When you see a droplet of venom (looks very familiar lol whitish) it means they are in bussiness. They do it all the time. Afterward they just sting. But I did have to relocate the female once and i got shot on the arm, shoulder and a bit on my chin. because i was persuading her to get into her [does your mother know you talk like that?] tank.

They have a very large telson and venom sack. I guess this is why they have no trouble to flick whats in it. It rarely happens though, since most inverts, they rather try to avoid confrontation.

All in all, they all run.. but these are the ones that stand ground the most. Like a baboon spider pretty much. Good thing they cant climb. Id rather be bit by a baboon than being stung by one of these tbh. The sensation it gives when it lands on skin is like that of tigerbalsem. Only worse, it doesnt heat up the part its landed on, but it gives a weird tingling, irritated feeling. So I think I pissed one off and know what they do. No hissing though.

I believe their aim is a myth though. I'm sure they can somewhat direct the spray (thing beam of venom) but I dont think they aim for eyes. I put on in front of the light and I go stand on the dark side. This way they dont see a big shadow in front of them and I guess they cannot aim without seeing that.

If you can get one, get one.

My big female bangs her tail off of things when defensive to make sounds but doesnt hiss. Only my Rhopalurus junceus audibly hiss when threatened or touched that I know of.

Keep us updated, Have to update my thread too sometime, had to seperate my pair cuz I don't think the mating was successful

Update 28/08/2011

Looking good, looking fat and sunbathing as well as looking for humid spots. Good sign of close birthing. And yes, I know, I need to clean my glasses.


She sits on a humid spot, I made for her right there. I have separated them too as I think it will not take very long anymore. Yes my fav species into babymaking! Cool.

As of today I noticed she burrowed a huge burrow halfway through her enclosure. Luckily its 'staying quarters" are right next to the glass. Good stuff as I can clearly see now, if she has given birth or not and very easy to take pictures from.

Fingers crossed now, this seems that the birth will be within somewhat 1-3 weeks.

I am bumping up heat now to 33 centigrade and giving her locally some moistureness, for her own sake and the scorplings as well as for the burrow to stay strong.
