Love the beautiful pictures of the different Mesobuthus spp you have put up and the well organised sections above.

And about the pectine shots, stunning!

As you have said, its good time to gather all Mesobuthus spp lovers in a single thread to consolidate useful information for the sake of learning or breeding.

Awesome start! Very Happy

Wow those are some cool looking scorps!
I'd like to get a Mesobuthus communal colony started.
Does anyone know what species is the most communal?
I read in Manny Rubio's book that they can even be active during the day. That would make them a great display tank. Climbing around in bark in all. I only have a communal Centruroides vittatus tank right now, and only a few come out at night.

Can I not keep different Mesobuthus spp. together in a single enclosure?

To me, Mesobuthus scorpions look like a less deadly version of the Lierus quinquestriatus.

I do not know the rules for how many you can have, but give them plenty of hides and a root or more to clomb on! Smile

I recently ordered 0.0.2 Mesobuthus gibbosus (along with 0.0.3 Rhopalurus junceus and 0.0.1 Centruroides gracilis dark morph), and got a freebie for every species I ordered!

So now I have 0.0.3 M. gibbosus, all instar 2. I noticed they seem to be quite large for a 2nd instar, a bit bulkier than my 2nd instar C. gracilis for example. Also, I've read that M. gibbosus can grow to be quite large, about 2/3 times as big as an M. martensii (as stated by a few people on another forum).

Does anyone know if this is true?
