Some Scorpion and centipede pics

Just a few pics for those of you who asked. Sorry, no macro lens and some subjects are either very small or very fast :(

Very nice! Will you be selling these babies? Because I am slowly growing my scorpion collection.
Got some P.traansvaalicus recently.

Thanx Spider!

I will be selling them yes, but only once they reach 3rd instar. Mortality rate is too high (especially with beginner keepers in mind) when it comes to scorplings younger than 3rd instar.

Parabuthus are great to keep, just don't get stung! They can be real sneaky sometimes :)

Awesome collection you got going there. I will be keeping in touch :)

What species of centipede is that and to what size do they grow?

Kewl beans man :)

The first set of pictures is Scolopendra morsitans, and I haven't seen ones bigger than about 120mm. Mine is roughly 80mm. The last is two pictures is of what I presume to be Ethmostigmus trigonopodus, mine is at about 200mm give or take. They might grow a little bigger I think. Probably about 250mm+

Nice man! Have found quite a few of the first centipede pictured, really fast little creatures, not as scary as the 20cm plus ones though. Like the color "scheme" of the U. formosus!

hy jason.

its nice to see that your collection grows up well :)
good luck with them, and i hope you send some new pictures in the future.

i know that these litle Uroplectes are very fast, and it is not easy to make pictures of them ;)

i think your U.carinatus is an U.planimanus ;)
maybe you have some more pictures of them to see what for species it is.

regards alex
