Got some new Parabuthus spp. yesterday (both males), took some pics today. The capensis is a aggro little monster and the granulatus also a demon. Both take crickets off of the tweezers which is a making feeding a joy.
Hope you enjoy.

Also found him a nice female, which I think is gravid already.

Oh and P. capensis, havent sourced a female for him yet. They are just too difficult to find.

Thanks man. Can anyone tell if the female is gravid? Or is she just fat? This is my first time breeding Parabuthus.

Physical signs of embryos might not be easily visible on some species. You may, however, take note if the female exhibits behavior of a gravid individual.

Refer to: Observations of a gravid female:

Have you tried putting the pair together?

Thanks man, yes, tried putting them together multiple times and each time the female would just move away and flick at the male with her tail. She is still eating like a monster and I dont know if she lingers at a high humidity spot as I dont have a water bowl for her, I just make a wet spot twice a week for her in the corner and I dont really check up if she goes there or not.

Update on the female. Can anyone HAZARD a guess towards how far along she is? I got her after she mated so I have no idea.

Thanks for the update.

Can't really tell from the pictures as body mass gained can be deceiving at times.
A freshly mated adult female could attain this size within 2 weeks under continuous feeding.

Probably halfway through her gestation.. i'm not sure, but i certainly hope it's sooner for you.
You have to observe the occurrence of the other "signs" as only you get access to her daily behavior.

She can be fatten up further. Keep her nice and warm with a slightly moist side at a tiny portion of her tank (e.g. less than 10% surface area), offering a heat gradient is useful for them.

Brooding females drinks alot, fill that capful with water often. As long as there is unrestricted (but secured) ventilation, a small capful should not cause the humidity to exceed the healthy range.

Gd luck Smile

Thanks GS, she has been refusing food the last week and a half.
Will fill it up immediately.
