Late last night, I discovered my female Hoffmannius spinigerus lying upside down, on her back, dead. I'm kind of at a loss as to why. Middle of last week on feeding day, I lifted her rocks and she appeared normal...a bit grumpy at the intrusion, but that was her normal, lol. I do not know the average lifespan of this species, and I'm hoping it was just her time to go. Sigh, I adored that little girl.
I've had her for over a year now, she was bought as a WC adult, so I really have no idea how old she really was. She's lived contently with her buddy, Mack, since they arrived. They were even kind enough to present me with of brood of scorplings a few months back! I have never witnessed any aggression between the two of them, so I highly doubt that Mack killed her, but I suppose that it is possible. He's always been the more laid back and easy-going one anyway. Finding her upside down is what was most weird to me, is that at all normal?
I still have 2 of their scorplings that had yet to be sold...I'm thinking now that I'm just going to hold onto those little ones, keep a little bit of my ornery Miss Molly around for a while longer. She will most definitely be missed.
