Topic Hottentotta trilineatus

Post by yames on Tue Oct 29, 2013 4:26 am

I picked up 3 just recently and will edit in the pictures shortly. But I'm having a terrible time finding out how big they are at full grown. What i they mature at and brood sizes. I'd also like to know how to tell males from females. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

#1 is either a gravid female or a premolt question mark
Hottentotta trilineatus 7_new_10

#2 is also either a premolt question mark or a gravid female
Hottentotta trilineatus 7_new_11

And #3 is a full grown male. I think.
Hottentotta trilineatus 7_new_12

#1 and #2 aren't that much smaller then #3 so with females attaining 1 more molt then males I'm guessing they are 1 away from maturity females. But my seller thinks they could be gravid. I guess some time will tell.
Thought?

I have a few H. polystictus, they are pretty much the same as H.trilineatus. They don't grow big, I think between 6-7cm and that's about all I can tell you as mine just hit 5i so I don't know much concerning brood info.

#3 was a male for sure. I picked up a 4th one at show and my dealer said she arrived gravid and had eaten most of her babies by the time he unpacked his order. So I picked her up at the last show and they just mated last night. So as soon as I get around to downloading my camera I will update this post.

It's a male. Please compare the pics above. Male = globose manus & massive metasoma.
Where is this specimen collected?
H.trilineatus is very similar to H.fuscitruncus(this taxon is recently restored by Kovarik)

My female that I mated had a very small litter of 2 babies. I'm guessing I just couldn't keep the temps up high enough through this brutal winter.

And #2 molted into a boy not a gravid girl at all which was a bummer but not that bad.

I have two myself and was wondering about size. They seem so tiny, I guess I was expecting them to be bigger. Makes me wonder if one of mine is gravid as well, looks identical to your pic#1 and #2. She's in hiding most of the time and I have yet to see her eat anything. She's usually side by side with my male hanging upside down under a rock. Never see her come out of hide. I will stop rambling before I hijack your thread. lol

I would like to know if there's any specific care tips for this species please. 

I'm picking one up this Sun.

Thanks,

Aaron.

I have mine on sand with a bit of coco fiber. Temps around 28-30c. Mine are usually upside down on rocks or corkbark so has long has the have a few places to hide you should be good.

My place is really dry so I have a small water dish filled with rocks (so they don't drown). You have probably already gathered from this thread that they don't really need it if your setup is around 40-50% humidity. Maybe mist the side of the tank once every week or two. You can also soak a cotton ball in some water.

Feeding, you can give them 1-2 crickets every week. If they don't take it, take it out of the tank as to not stress it and re-try the next week.


If you do a search here, there's a sticky caresheet for desert scorpions. I would have posted the link but do not have sufficient permission yet has a new member. lol
