Awesome shots there GS. I love this species, they're the perfect macro subject. I really want some more of these. I just love the patterns on these guys, I think if they were bigger they'd be a really popular species.

Might as well stick my favorite pic I took of mine when I had them in here, if that's alright with you!

This species looks so good under a macro lense. I mean look at that patterning on the telson on GS's second picture. Absolutely stunning, and even more remarkable that there is such intricate detail on something that is just a few mm in size.

It's a shame that you can't really see the patterning when looking at this species with the naked eye.

weird that here in the Philippines, this species occurs in a grayish-black morph rather than the leopard/marbled look

@Callum
A few years. Yes, i agree they would have been much more popular (and costly) if they are able to get much bigger in size. lolz

@Jay
Please, go ahead to post more of your great works! I'm enjoying them, as usual Smile

@exoticvirus
It might not be conclusive for all of this species from your country to be in that color morph you mentioned. Sometimes, there might be color variation between specimens among the same species.

i'm currently keeping a small colony and as GS said, there are lighter and darker specimens even if they came from the same brood/locality regardless of feeders (which is a pain in the &$# for earlier instars) and substrate.

How has everyone found raising the young of these?

I split them all into pots containing 4 slings each. I've experienced cannibalism in all the groups, although in most I still have 3 slings cohabiting. They've gone through 3 moults being kept like this.

Has anyone else been raising them in groups/colonies?

Also, does anyone know at what instar C. celebensis matures??

I've kept the earlier instars separately in either film canisters or urine sample cups (unused, of course). According to other keepers' experiences, C. celebensis have cannibalistic tendencies even as adults, though my small colony (all adult )is still casualty-free AOTM, maybe because of the constant supply of lat nymphs. I just removed gravid females as I have experienced older specimens snacking on the slings at mama's back.

My small colony, w/c I got from a trade, are all 6i (according to the former owner) and gave me slings already. Raising them is a rather difficult experience, though.

A good friend gave me 4 C. rectimanus and they look a bit similar, sans the cannibalistic nature of the C. celebensis.

I failed miserably at raising the brood my only female had.

Then my male was cannibalised by the female and that was the end of that... Rolling Eyes

That's a shame. Is there anything you felt you did wrong?

I think I may seperate all mine now as judging by what I have read here, I've been pretty lucky to still have so many left.

I'd love some C. rectimanus, but I've only ever seem them available once over in Germany.

Well I obviously done something very wrong! Very Happy

What that was though I'm not at all sure, nothing really stands out in my memory that I thought I should have done differently. I kept the brood in typical forest scorpion fashion and communally. Some probably succumbed to cannibalism but the others never made it to 3i so it was very unsuccessful. I do wish I had separated them into a few pots all set-up slightly different in moisture and heat to see if any thrived but I didn't expect them to perish so quickly.

I plan to have another bash with this species in the future though as I just think they're great.

Letting them get snacked on would have been a shame. And no scorpion is too small to not deserve their own tank. You can get a small critter keeper for 8-13 bucks and keep them there. Or some deli cups. I've made some deli cup enclosures that cost me under $2 a piece.
