Topic Heterometrus swammerdami - Giant Indian Scorpion

Post by High Lord Dee on Mon Mar 10, 2014 4:06 am

Just picked up a baby swammerdami.  Cute little thing.  Hard to believe that it could grow to be 7-1/2".  Any advice on the feeding frequency?  I usually feed my smaller inverts 2-3 times per week.  Any other sammerdami tips or stories would be appreciated as well.  Thanks.

Probably once a week would be fine.

Frequency depends on its instar.  Smile

Here is an awesome helpful guide by sir GS on feeding scorps.
Since you did say it was a 'baby swammerdami, this guide will be for low instar scorpions

Spot on.  My scorp is definitely a 2nd instar and have been feeding 2x/week.  Going to move it up to 3x for awhile and see how it goes.  Thanks!
