PostSubject: Getting another species.   4/10/2013, 3:03 pm

Hi everybody,


I decided to get another scorpion.
At this moment I am not sure what I want yet.
Been really down from the situation with my H. Arizonensis.



I have access to amazing specimens, and to be honest it is a bit overwhelming.

Here are some species I am thinking about:
- Androctonus sp. (Australis, Bicolor, Mauretanicus)
- Leiurus Quinquestriatus

All the specimens are actually all adults. Good prices and affordable.
However, I know that their lifespan as a Buthid is shorter than other larger scorpions.
I can also get Androctonus Mauretanicus 4th/6th instar, so I thought I'd might begin with a smaller specimen.

I would like to have a desert species who can attain considerable age.
The fear I have is perhaps purchasing an adult LQ, and having it a year and it dies.
Are there any I wonder? Most of them linger around 4 years max.


Take care y'all!


Joey

Not desert, but an Iurus/Protoiurus spp. Without a doubt my most 'characterful' scorpions. They're reasonably active and have comical characteristics. They are also impressive looking scorpions in my highly biased opinion Laughing You could keep them in a semi-arid style (think Turkish scrubland) enclosure so long as you provided some humid places for them to hide.

Failing that, go for the sub-adult A. mauretanicus because you'll get a good few years out of it (sounds like I'm taking about a car) and they look awesome.

I would also go with the A.mauritanicus from that list. Imo they look the best of all the Androctonus with that awesome matte black finish and they don't skip in the fat tail department.

In my opinion, the A. mauritanicus is my favorite of the Andro's. Really you can't go wrong with any of them. Smile

Googled... very nice looking species! But not within my reach.
A. Mauretanicus is very nice indeed;)

Thanks man. Got a small inflammation but got some meds.


I have decided on a scorp.

I gave the seller a name....
And I can tell you it will be a young scorpy.

I can tell you it's a buthid....
And that its name will be fitting.


I can tell you I have expressed a few times I like this species, but kept it quiet.
I can tell you....



Nahhhh.........


You'll just have 2 wait and see, awesomeness is in store lol.

I can't wait to get the little scorpy, who will come a long way I can tell you that....
Coming week when I am feeling better, I will make a new desert set up for little .... awesome

Take care !!! jocolor

Today I finished making the new enclosure for "it that has not arrived yet".

It is a desert setup.

I have been using fossilised wood again... dried tilantsia... and... some spiderwood.

the theme of the enclosure is red african desert... Razz
narrows it down for ya a bit;)

Lol...Razz

I don't want to spoil everything by displaying the enclosure just now. If and when the scorp comes it will all be in it's thread:)


Take care,


I like you guys!
