Great capture Wearelegion.

I have a posted video some time ago, on a "sink hole" being utilized Smile

For those who has missed this in the Parabuthus spp discussion thread:

That's a pretty interesting hunting "technique'

My A.b. just uses the usual burrow tactic. And just to make sure the (already dead) prey doesn't escape, he closes the burrow entrance. Understandable though, I do like my privacy when having dinner as well Smile

Looking at this it seems that they adapt acording to the type of the substrate. My P. Transvalicus uses normal burrow creep tactic as his substrate is more compact and better for digging.

Could be. I use fine petstore sand for my Andros, Parabuthus and H. tamulus. I wet it down and let it dry. Gets pretty stable and very clay-like even without adding anything to it.
All these make burrows and some use them most of the time, other specimens prefer staying on "ground-level".

My C. Vittatus just did something interesting. I was going to get a cricket out that I had put in, because he didn't seem to be hungry. I decided to watch for a minute, and Boomer (my scorpion) was hiding under a piece of bark I put in. The cricket comes walking by, and Boomer reaches out with his claws and grabs the cricket by the back leg, while still completely under his hide. He tried to drag the cricket under the hide with him, but it managed to wiggle out. Has anyone else ever seen this before?

That was funny. I liked how he had to take a break from trying to get it out. Maybe coming up with a better plan then pulling real hard and twisting... then nope right back to the same plan.

GS how are we going to organize a trade? one of them for a Lq from me? Not the one who get's his stinger stuck though. I don't need a short bus scorpion. lol

today i observed different behaviors from 2 kinds of scorpion.

1.) H. hottentotta

- after the hh babies has left the mom's back i still keep them together. mom kills cricket and let her babies scavenge on the dead cricket. after 2 weeks no cannibalism has taken place. also the babies still come back the mom's back during daytime or when frightened and the mom seem to not mind at all.

2.) H. paucidens

- after eating another SW today, i noticed that it was half-eaten. she was still holding it with her 2 pedipalps as if a kid was holding a sandwich then i noticed she was flexing her chelicerae in a very weird manner like pulling it in and out of it's head while still holding the half-eaten SW

My favorite part of the hobby is seeing mom and kids and their interactions. Blows my mind that your H. hottentotta is bascily feeding littled clones of herself. affraid

Wild Anuroctonus mother with her scorplings in-situ.


This particular specimen is a monster, a whopping 4 inches NOT counting the metasoma or palps! Her babies, which are 2nd instars, are monsters, themselves- the size of 3rd instars! I was able to illuminate them and observe their natural behavior by placing my flashlight under my shirt, dimming the light to the point that their photophobia wasn't triggered.

It's a shame i couldn't get video, the torch on my phone is way too strong.. The mother wasn't showing interest in the roaches and field crickets that wandered by, but the babies were definitely hungry, fighting over scytodes they had captured. Watching them smack each other was hilarious.

As light drizzle moved in, i got to witness sponge-bathing clearly. Generally these scorpions really dont like getting wet, but since all the mature females in the area were definitely dehydrated, they were eager for the moisture! virtually every mature female there had scorplings!

I had no idea just how many of them were present there, but now that I got a good look with the blacklight, there were portions of the hill that had densities so high that it looked like radiation Very Happy

One of my p. boreus likes to hang upside down from the tops of Kritter Keepers if he gets the chance. Probably just trying to escape. Smile He seemed very pleased to get a chance to climb, I might give him some bark or something in the future. His temporary cagemate completely ignored the makeshift divider and stayed on his own side. lol
