pectines Jan. 22nd, 2009 @ 11:06 pm
My fiance and I recently acquired a very young scorpion(had its first moult quite recently) and after close observation, I noticed these little things sticking out and kind of "feeling" around, that definitely were not legs! So, after some research, I've come to the conclusion that it is the scorp's pectines. Of all the photos I've seen, I've never been able to see the pectines. Is this normal for a scorp this young and am I able to sex it?

We also don't know what species. The guy said a desert scorpion and that it's lethal. Hm. Not smart of him, eh? But we really didn't have a choice to say no! We wish to keep it and become experienced, but I would also like to know for sure what species it is. I'll have to get a few photos...

Also, how frequently do scorps moult? Thank you. :) I appreciate it.

I was contacted a few months ago about this, and couldn't say anything till now.
I'm now a published photographer!

A Japanese publisher, SoftBank Creative, just released a book "Extremely Poisonous Animals 50" (isbn 978-4-7973-4673-2)

My shot begins the description for Tityus serrulatus, listed as the 29th most poisonous animal in the book...

» So my scorpion died...
We're thinking he was around 5 or 6. My mom wants to burn him, but I'd like to save his body. He's an emperor scorpion and is around 6 in / 15 cm long. If anyone has any ideas for how to preserve his body, that'd be great. :)
» Thank you!
Alright, my bark scorpion's babies have all gone through their first molt. They were so CUUUUTE!

I felt bad for keeping her (and them) in a tiny jar, so I finally found a place to let her go. There's an electrical station on the corner that's always got bugs floating around the lights and plenty of bushes. I've never seen anyone at the station for the entire year I lived up the street, too, so I'm guessing it's fairly peaceful.

Thank you all for your suggestions and help. :)

Thanks for the advice people. Jason and I let Earl go in a nice desert area with no people, lots of rocks and dry plant things that he clung to as soon as we let him go. He seemed to be happy there! We videotaped Earl's goodbye. We might put it up on youtube if we are feeling lame. Hehe. Awww this makes me want to get a scorpion now. I hope Earl's doing okay. =]
