Hi, i'm from the philippines and i just started in the hobby a couple of months ago. i started with two h.longimanus' 2i and 3i. is true they're parthenogenetic?

hope we can all get along and get some good guidance from the pros!

More power! Very Happy

Welcome to the forum jinjo.

It is hard to tell if h. longimanus are really parthenogenetic. Resources said that there are no species of heterometrus being parthenogenetic.

On the other hand, here in the Philippines there are few reports of parthenogenesis of these scorps but is still unacceptable because no documentations have been done.

Personally, I can't tell it yet because I have not encountered this event once.

In my experience, H.longimanus reproduces by mating. Untill a scientific paper documents otherwise, it'll be safe not to assume and give ourselves false hope.

It'll be awesome if they are parthenogenetic though, the common parthenogenetic scorpions in the hobby are often small sized.

Welcome to the forum jinjo!

GS, +1

In my view, if males are easily "available" in the wild, the chances are the scorpion is not parthenogenetic.

I.e, in populations of parthenogenetic Hottentotta and Tityus, male specimens are very difficult to come by due to the fact that parthenogenesis in scorpions is apomictic, meaning there will never be male offspring in a parthenogenetic brood.
