PostSubject: my scorpions   4/15/2012, 7:02 pm

Hello
I have 2 scorpions for now
Heterometrus Spinifer
I think it is male, but i am not so sure
It is about 10 cm long
I have a small problem with it, it doesn't want to eat for 2-3 weeks for now, before that, he ate every sunday. I got him a month ago. What can be problem?


Rhopalurus Junceus
It is unsexed
2-3 cm long
How can i provide water for it?

Nice scorpions. R. junceus is a bark scorpion, so it should have a vertical piece of bark in it's tank. You can offer water by using a small plastic water bottle cap as a water dish.

Also, you may want to look at this general caresheet by GS: General Bark Scorpion Caresheet by GS.

Not eating is normal behavior. Don't worry about it, scorpions will sometimes go months without food. (My emp went over six months without food once.) Just offer food once a week or so.

The one I first thought was a H. spinifer is in fact a H. petersii. Sorry about the incorrect identification. sign
One of the best ways to tell the difference between the two species is the internal tubercle on the patella. There is a discussion on this on your Unknown Heterometrus thread.
