 P. imperator pregnancy

Hey I was at work today and unloaded a shipment of P. imperators. When i saw one, I simply had to purchase it. It is EXTREMELY fat. Itís a good 6-7" chilicera to telson, and looks to be gravid. Does anyone (especially Metz) have any pictures of gravid imperators? Iíd like to compare them to my new scorp. Should I raise the temperature or anything for her? Itís about 85 degrees right now. Thanks for your help.

John

I forgot to mention, itís the most aggressive imperator Iíve ever encountered. Could this be from pregnancy?

Here are some pictures of her. Do you think sheís gravid, or just morbidly obese?

Fat and gravid, especially when it comes to inverts looks pretty much the same. I could post pix of a fat scorp and a gravid one and you wouldnít be able to tell the difference really. All you can really do is wait and see. If they are WC then it probably is gravid.

She had babies!!! Three are out, but looking at her cephalothorax, thereís surely more on the way. Here are some pics of momma and the kids. This is my first successful breeding:

Lovely little scorps you have there ,but just a word of warning ,the less disturbance she gets the better or you may wake up to dead babyís one morning .So just make sure mom has enough food in her tank and leave her alone in peace to take care of them . (I say this from personal exp with mine a few months ago )

I saw this earlier, just got distracted and forgot to reply.
Cute little critters, I canít wait until my female pops again. Nothing like having a bunch of little emps crusing around everywhere.

Enviromental conditions play a large part in producing successful clutches.

Then you need to keep the gravel layer filled with water and they wonít do that. They burrow deeper to get to their desired tempreture and humidity level. If those conditions are met at the top of the substrate they wonít dig so deep.
