  1. Yeah that's kind of how I ended up with my Heterometrus... Guy bought her as a "large" adult that "liked to eat" next thing you know, babies lol so I've been helping him raise the new norms but I know there is much more I've yet to find out which also brought me here
  2. Hey Roman, I seen your post and wanted to do some digging and I came across a rather interesting paper written in 2002 that showed the gestation period for a select list of scorpions and wouldn't you know it I found the Vaejovis Carolinianus on it, apparently, their gestation period, or as they described as "Embryonic Development" period ranges from 12-13 months! The paper also made mention of the possibility of the evolution of parthenogenises due to environmental influence but made no mention of the Vaejovis Carolinianus.They did say however, that no less than 8 species of Scorpion are known to be Parthenogenetic, none of which originate from N.America. Hope this helps. The paper was written in 2002, so more may have been learned in this time since, however, even they referenced to papers and observations made in the 50's and 60's lol
  3. Time is 0246 in the morning, and I can't sleep so why not introduce myself to the forum!? My name's Nate, N8tive556, Nathaniel or Hey jerk, if the situation calls for it lol I enjoy just about all things buggy and arachnid. I found out about this forum from my gf she's on her as well you guys may know her as @Zippermouth she has come to me with a plethora of knowledge that she has found on here and I am more than happy to report that it has been more than helpful and have appreciated everybody's time for lending a hand helping us care properly for our Madagascar Hissers! The reason it has taken so long to introduce myself is because I have found myself in the midst of one heck of a grain mite infestation... But alas Here I am! I think the one thing that is on my mind right now that I would like to ask the community regards inbreeding in roaches. Are there any complications that anybody knows of? Also size difference, our original batch of roaches that were born have started to reach their fifth molt however, there is a noticeable size difference in between a good bit of them. some look as if they are still in their fourth stage while one of them looks to be still in a third stage, so I suppose the question would be what is the best course of action? should I separate the larger of the group from the smaller? I think that about sums it up Many thanks, see you guys and gals on the boards! PS I have recently acquired a baby Asian Forest Scorpion, seeing as this is not an arachnid board, I was just wondering if anybody knew of a forum I may be able to find additional care information for them? Or if anyone keeps them as well that I may be able to ask any questions to.
  4. I would say Hot Glue aswell, My fingers would disagree due to the fact Im not all that crafty. But yeah I would say hotglue, However I DO like the HVAC tape idea aswell
