LotLot, My 8i (8th instar) female Heterometrus longimanus has finally popped thirty-plus slings.
Now all I have to do is wait for the babies to molt (shedding of exoskeleton) and crawl off their mother’s back so I can put them into separate containers and sell them. Of course, some will be given to my friends depending on my mood.
There are exactly 36 slings but I only separated and re-housed 25 of them since I ran out of small delicups the other night.
Now who wants a pet scorpion?
