Well my H. arizonensis has finally kicked the bucket, she's been dragging her tail and juddering for the past week. She was one of my first scorps and one of my favourite so here's some of the pics I took of her. Sort of a happier RIP thread than pics of dead said scorp Very Happy

Thanks guys! Yes she will live on in my pictures Very Happy I know it seems silly but she was one of the bugs to get me truly hooked on the hobby.

Yep I plan on getting another one as I have this set-up empty now with not much to go in it. Think I'll get one without the free mycosis this time lol.

Cheers Anna, you could catch me one in the wild right? Very Happy

Cheers Shane, I'll check those out mate, think spider shop has them too, also H. arizonensis paladus hmmm

Something I was thinking about and wonder if anyone has any ideas. Do you think it's a good idea for me to put another scorp in this set-up after it has housed a scorp with mycosis? Kind of worried it could be catchable to the next scorp but damn there's alot of excavator clay in this set-up that i'd rather keep lol

Well done on the Haddy molt mate, that's quite an achievement. Keep doing what your doing and you could be one of the few that has raised them in captivity. I have read it's the later molts that are more of a risk though.

Sorry for your Het. loss mate, while we're on the subject hows little madras doing lol Very Happy

Sure I can! Not sure about shipping tho Smile


Well, everything I can find about mycosis is mostly related to mammals.

What I have read though would make me hesitant to put a new animal in a previously infected environment.

Mycosis is a fungus that travels by spore. Without knowing if a particular fungus can live without a host, how long it can live without a host, or even if spores were carried in animal droppings or sheds it would be really hard to say for sure.

I know that when I was keeping frogs, the big killer was Chytrid, which was also another moisture born fungus, highly contagious and affecting entire ecosystems. That was our reasons for quarantine periods and keeping tank to tank activities practically sterile.

Haha cheers Anna, I was just joking though. Thank you for your insight on the mycosis matter and I've got a feeling I'd be better off re-doing the tank and getting rid just in case, for the sake of a bit of sand I might as well then there's no worries, cheers.

Cool Shane, just keep doing what your doing mate.

Cheers Bex, she was gorgeous to me, maybe not everyone with her fungus feet and myco spots LOL but I think I made her look good. Very Happy

It would be better to get some other sand in it, just for your own peace of mind. However, mycosis will not start in that tank, even if a scorpion with mycosis has lived in it.

Mycosis will infect your scorpion only when it is too humid. You had it along with the scorpion. It hasnt caught the fungus at your place.

It will not break out on other scorpions, given the same conditions.

The spores might be there, but its with all fungie.. they activate with water and a feeding ground. No water, no fungus.

THanks Anna, i love you too!

I have a male australis with mycosis and it lives with my female one, for a very long time already and she still doesnt have it. Even when she was gravid and when i wettened the substrate to force the end of the gestation.

This leads me to believe mycosis is really something when a scorpion has been exposed to SEVERE humidity. Tropical scorpions even seem immune to it. So I'm talking about desert species.

Yeah good info pluto mate, nice one, and your right, it had hardly spread at all in my care and don't think the death was related to it, I'm thinking old age because she had been slowing down for a while now.

Any way for the sake of some sand I'll just change it out for the new one.

Cheers! haha they are pretty illusive mate! Laughing price of them has shot up over here, I paid 20 quid over a year ago now there 30-40. I do think everyone should have a haddy though, for me they're the biggest most impressive desert scorps, without thinking about Andros and such lol

They're pretty much the same price here. I had ordered one in february but they had been sold out. This month I would have the chance, but with the order I already placed, I don't think I'll find any more cash for a haddy, lol

Well, hopefully in the spring I'll be able to finally get one.

+1 to your last statement, they're definitely the greatest non-buthid desert-scorp.
