My newest arrival

I loved my Grosphus ankarana so much I decided I would dabble a bit more with this genus. This can also serve a how to sex grosphus thread but I’m working on a caresheet that will be more detailed.

Grosphus grandidieri female 1 Top view



G. Grandidieri Female 1 Pectines (notice the enlarged pectine tooth found ONLY on females)



G. grandidieri Female 2 Top view (nicknamed Tails)



G.grandidieri Female 2 closer view of damaged tail.



G.grandidieri Female 2 Pectines (notice the enlarged pectine tooth found ONLY on females)



G.grandidieri Male top view. (Slimmer bodies compared to females)



G.grandidieri Male Pectines. ( Notice the longer brushier teeth and the enlarged tooth missing)



G.Grandidieri group size comparison



Female 1 and Male under UV



Female 2 (Tails) under UV

I was told that they were seen mating shortly before they were shipped me. If it was successful or not I’m not sure. They were given a flat surface to encourage mating and I will remove the male for a few weeks and reintroduce him to see if they’ll mate. I guess it’s just a waiting game. And hopefully “Tails” won’t have any problems mating with that damaged tail.

Beautiful species! It will be fun to see if these wander like the G. Ankaranas. Look forward to hearing about these. Congratulations!

She had a bad molt but seems to be fine, only scorp I've named. Kinda grew on me.

They're a pretty neat shade of black they have matte color with a glossy telson so they contrast nicely. But I still love the ankarana's better for two reasons.
1. They're bigger. Right now they're just slightly smaller than these and they still have a molt to go.
2. Ankarana are more agressive and will get into a threat pose and the slightest sense of your hand. The Grandidieri will freeze up, I suppose this is to camouflage where the ankaranas, being a much brighter color, stand a better chance of scaring a predator away than blending in with the enviroment.
