So, yes. I have three very fat looking scorpions in my collection right now ((I have 13 scorpions in all)) and these three are indeed females from what I can tell. One is a Ophistothalmus walberghi, second is a Smeringus mesaensis and the other is a wild caught Vaejovis carolinianus. I can take pics if anyone might be able to help me verify gravidness. I'm trying not to be too hopeful, but it would be GREAT if one or all of them were. =)

here are some pics. Sorry about some of the quality on these. Camera not that great and a couple of these guys are TINY. Not 100% on females and maybe Im just wishful thinking on gravid vs just being fat, but thought I'd get more opinions just incase. Wink

Ophistothalmus walberghi




Smeringurus mesaensis




Vaejovis carolinianus

well the Ophistothalmus walberghi looks fat from the above pic but gravid from the side one lol

the Smeringurus mesaensis i would say is deffo gravid

and the last one im not sure but does look gravid from the first pic

this is assuming they are all adult of course Smile

I know for a fact the Tri Color is adult. Other two I'm pretty sure. I don't think the Southern Devils get very big at all. Im unsure if the tricolor was wild caught or captive bred. Pretty sure on the Smeringurus mesaensis that it was wild caught and I know for a fact the Vaejovis carolinianus was wild caught because a friend of mine caught her for me a few months back.

Speaking of deli cups. Is there a place I can buy them other than having to order them online? Would a place like Wal-Mart carry them?

I am VERY excited. I 'think' there are atleast 18 babies which would bring my current scorpion count to 31. Here's hoping they all make it. =)

This is my 2nd scorpion mom with babies. First one didnt go so well. Hoping this one goes better. I know to separate babies when they get off mom. Keep it humid and I put a meal worm in so she could eat and feed them. Other than that Im just winging it because I really can't find care sheets for these guys. >_<
