okay, you all make valid arguments so i'm not going to push the food subject any further and i don't want to offend anyone. the point is that i'm really impressed by the larger breeds and i would like to find other large breeds that are just as facinating. the ones that you all suggested sound great, but where can i get them?

Seek and ye shall find lol....................

Where in the world are you? As far as I know many Heterometrus spp. are hard to come by in the States but are much easier to find here in Europe. Pandinus spp. other than imperator or cavimanus are difficult to find anywhere. Hadogenes spp. are pretty common in most places judging by what I've seen people keeping on forums.

If you are going to continue feeding it live mice and anoles I will choose not to help you find any more big scorpions.

i'm in NY. the guy i got her from had gotten 4 in a shipment from his supplier. they were sold to him as emperors and he had them for 2 years and couldn't sell them. i was the first person to walk into his store looking for scorpions. when i saw that the tip of their tail was red and they had a kind of green luster i knew they weren't emps, so i bought the biggest one he had and took it home to find out what it was. lucky me, she turned out to be an h spinifer. so it was kind of a gamble, but $20 for a huge scorp seemed like a good deal regardless of what she was. he assumed that i was new to scorpions, and he tried to tell me what to feed her. when he mentioned pinkies and lizards, i kinda cringed myself and said " but isn't that really bad for them. i hear it can cause complications during moulting?" he said that's what he usually feeds them and they've been doing fine for the 2 years he had them in the store. and that they've been moulting just fine the whole time. so i'm sorry if i wound anyone up, but i just figured i'd keep her on the diet she was used too. my other 3 scorps do fine with crickets and other feeder worms. so she's the only one i've been feeding gormet meals too. if i can get some hornedworms or large roaches up here, then i'll stop buying verts as feeders. they're too expensive anyway. the largest feeder insects you can find here are super worms and they just burrow into the substrate only to re-emurge as those useless little beetles. so i am looking for an alternative for her, but no luck yet. if anyone can help me get something like that, i would really appreciate it. by the way, the other 3 spinifers are still available if anyone want's one and is close to NY.

You can crush the mealworms heads before feeding them. Also you could start breeding your own blaptica dubia. Its very inexpensive and easy Smile

You can buy roaches here and here.
