Just a quick heads up mate....P. schlechteri is an obligate burrower so you should really have it on consolidated sand. They also prefer to dig their burrows on uneven ground at the base of bushes or anything sticking up from the ground....This behaviour is regardless of instar.

My own pair of instar 5's dug out a huge network of tunnels within a couple of days of being on consolidated sand...

UPDATE:
Received some new scorps. I got 1.4 Parabuthus granulatus ( i can never say no to some granulatus as they are my favourite scorpion spp.) 0.1 Parabuthus planicauda, 1.0 Parabuthus capensis, 1.1 Androctonus mauretanicus.
Here are some pics:

First a pic of my P. schlechteri wrestling with his meal:




1.0 P. capensis




1.0 A. mauretanicus




0.1 A. mauretanicus (gravid)




0.1 P. planicauda, this little girl isnt in the best of shape, one of her pincers are broken and she has a slight limp. Hope she pulls through.




And lastly 0.1 P.granulatus, this is the biggest granulatus I have ever seen.




Thanks for looking.

Thanks scorpion. Yip, I really like that granulatus. If I had to guess size, she would be about 14cm.

There are 2 different types of emps. Savannah form and forest form. One of the forms grow to up to 20 cm or more and the others stop at all from 9-15 Smile

I had 6 grown emps ranging from 8 to 21 cm lol. They were all sexually mature. Needless to say, I got way more for the bigger ones when I sold them ^^

EDIT: They were all bought from different people and were mostly from different imports. I think only 2 or 3 were bought together Smile
