Great series of shots! Is she a wild-caught adult female?

It's an unresistable question seeing how FAT she is and with your signature indicating her sex Very Happy

Thank you!
She is most probably wildcaught but the store couldn't verify it.
I'd like to keep cb animals only. But she was the only H. Arizonensis could find in my country.
And I am very grateful to have her.

She has been sold to me as an semi adult / adult shop didnt know for sure....
And she is a big one yeah!! She was sitting on bark chips very out in the open in the store which I found strange. She has some mycosis but can't see any limbs not functioning and keeping here nice and dry.

I gave her this home, and she begun digging immediately, haven't seen her since.
She sealed herself in, so I am guessing for the final molt, or to give birth.

I have no way of checking she sealed everything off, even the little window on the side....
Haven't heard any digging or scraping noises for a while now so getting a bit worried, hope she is ok, but giving it time.

If she has baby's I will leave them with her until they get a bit bigger.I heard raising tiny cb H. Arizonensis is an almost insanely difficult task.

But I hope for the best!

Jabba is alive and well! bounce


Ok, well I haven't heard from her quite a while.
No digging, or any kind of noises, nor did I see her anymore.

Reluctantly I dug her up, I just had to make sure she was ok and in the meantime gave her terrarium a little upgrade like I did with the rest.

I was very relieved and happy to see a wiggling scorpion coming out of the sand. Laughing

Also I took the time to do a little photoshoot, and check on her well being.
Took some measurements and she was very calm.

I think she lost some weight actually, she seems thinner. She hasn't molted or anything so I give the terrarium a polish added some thinks and left it at that.

I handled her gently behind her aculeus and she was very relaxed and not at all aggressive. I took some pictures and put her back in the enclosure. She now sits behind her hide again.
I am very relieved.

Here are the pictures, please enjoy :

Added some sand, a few pieces of forest ground, some Catappa leaves, and a new stone.



Approximately 8,5/9 cmters total body lenght from aculeus to cephalothorax


Very hard to keep the camera still and a scorpion in your other hand but a little picture of the mycosis scar at the mesosoma. Some speculate that is is actually a mating sting wound.




They told me it is a she... I think that is correct looking at the space between the inner pectines which is quite wide, in contrast to a male which has a narrow space.



In all her glory <3

























That's all folks! Smile Byeeeee !!!





Take care now,


Joey

I would speculate that she is gravid as well. At this point if she was in my collection I think I would keep her on a minimum amount of loose sand with a cork hide. It's my understanding that we can't provide the optimum humidity for her to raise her young so given the chance she will dig a deep hide then consume them all because she can't find the correct humidity range.

I would set up for the time when she abandons her young and then move them immediately to the 1st instar incubation process GS has outlined in his ASA.

She died a while ago.
The mycosis had spread I reckon.
