Parabuthus transvaalicus mating

Recommended Posts

While I am writing this I am observing a new female Parabuthus transvaalicus getting bred. The female was produced by Giorgio about 2 1/2 years ago. Anyone ever hear of Giorgio :lol:? Anyway I have raised her from 2nd instar and she matured recently. The male is my old stud that gets all the girls for now LOL. I am hoping to add a new gene to my pool of these great scorpions. These are truly great scorpions to work with. They seem to be about the easiest of the desert species to breed or at least in my experience they are.

Hi,

My Italian speaking ability does not exist :wub:

 

My wife is from Peru so I am learning to speak some in Espanol.

 

I keep scorpions, tarantulas and vinegaroons but scorpions are my real passion. I currently keep over 300 scorpions of about 25-30 species.

 

You all probably prefer tarantulas so here are a few of the Ts that I keep

 

Pamphobeteus nigricolor (mating pair)

Hi Brian,

 

congratulations for your spiders, really beautiful.

My preferred genus is Xenesthis, do you keep only X.immanis?

 

I know very well Todd Gearheart, do you know him by person?

I met him once in England some years ago.

 

Ciao,

 

Ste

 

P.S. so your wife is from Peru, nice, are you planning some collecting trip there? :rolleyes:

Hi Brian,

I also prefer Xenesthis, Megaphobema, and Pamphobeteus. I also keep X intermedia which is a lovely species as well. I prefer the big "itchy" spiders from

I only know him online. I have never bought from him though.

I have been to Peru 8 times so far and have made a few trips in the field. Here are some photos I took last year while I was there.

Hi Brian!

Welcome in this community!

 

Very nice pictures, and very nice animals!

 

You are in fall when you say "you probably all prefer tarantulas..." :-)

 

I'm a scorpions keeper... I will send you a PM for some questions about some species that you probably know much more than me...

Hi, As you probably already know, Pamphobeteus is a very problematic genus that is probably in need of revision. I have often wondered if the "Ecuador" sp is actually a P nigricolor but since I am not a taxonomist I cant say that with much certainty.

 

 

wellcome to this forum Brian and congratulations again for your animals.wonderfull :wub: send us all the pictures you have :huh: !!ciao

Thank you and thank you to everyone else. It is nice to meet you all :o
