These two female Damon diadema are looking pretty far along in developing an egg case so babies should come soon! I decided it was close enough to separate all of them out of there mating terrariums and put them in there birthing boxes. The last photo shows all the spermatophores on the bark from one of the males in the mating terrarium, obviously he did his job πŸ˜‚

I just received my scorpions today and they all arrived alive and well! I have 10 baby Hottentotta hottentotta all housed now. Thanks @stugystug for the great care in shipping.

This should make sense of things!
Heterometrus laoticus on the left, Pandinopsis dictator in middle, & Pandinoides duffmackayi on the right.
Now they look different and easily distinguishable as adults!

It’s difficult to distinguish these three different genus & species by their molts at 2nd & 3rd instar. I’ve got Pandinoides duffmackayi, Pandinopsis dictator, and Heterometrus laoticus represented here... can you guess which molt belongs to which scorpion?

I did a scorpion swap with @stugystug yesterday. Shipped some Adult Centruroides gracilis out and excited to get some Hottentotta hottentotta in! One of the great things about social media is providing a network where we as hobbyists can share with each other and provide new arachnid keeping experiences πŸ˜‰

Pairing my last male Leiurus quinquestriatus with one of the two females and my last male Androctonus australis with the last female in hopes of some breeding. The video and photos were taken hours ago and they are still going at it... I don't know why it's taking so long πŸ€”

A sketch of a Cambrian period trilobite, Elrathia kingi. Though not an Arachnid or even a Chelicerate, Trilobites are some of the oldest Arthropods to exist in the earths oceans.

This happened when I got home tonight! My third female Pandinopsis dictator has had her young! I've been expecting this for quite a while. πŸ¦‚

I took a few photos of some of my arachnids today while feeding, watering, & checking for molts. First picture is my Hadogenes paucidens that I've had for many years now, half the time I forget I still have it. Second is one of my Damon diadema that molted into second instar and is feeding on a Dubia roach. The last two pictures are two of my Pandinoides duffmackayi, one molted and they both were hungry.

These are my 3 remaining Deathstalker Scorpions, Leiurus quinquestriatus. The first picture is all 3 with the male at top, female at bottom, and the unknown at right. The following pictures show first the male topside then bottom side followed by the female top and bottom side and finally the unknown top and bottom side. I was certain the unknown was a female but the male wasn't interested in mating so that confused me and I know the other two are male and female because they mated a year ago. Any thoughts on what sex this third Deathstalker could be?
