How many times does a giant blue scorpion molt in a month? And how many months does it take to grow?

    It is quite different with all scorpions. Younger ones molt monthly, while older specimens molt very rarely. You can tell if they are due, the exoskeleton looks like it will burst and they won't eat.

I have a 55 gallon aquarium and I am trying to choose what kind of lizard to put in it. I do not want anything that requires a water only aquarium mainly because they are a real pain to clean and maintain. Some speices I had in mind were large geckos, bearded dragons, or maybe a small speices of monitor lizard. Does anybody have any good ideas that are less than 60 dollars?

    By the no water I meant like no full water or half water setups but I am fine with a big water dish.

    You can usually get a young Savanha for around that depending on area. Check classified listings too. Many people re-home reptiles.

    Thanks.

    You could probably get a madagascar day gecko (aka geico gecko).
  • Brooke - 2012-06-26
    I would put in some green anole lizards. They are easy to maintain and are very cheap. I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 anoles and they are fine. Also, only put 1 male in a tank or just have girls because the males will fight. Ask pet associate for more details.

    They can breed for a couple of months before they actually lay eggs.  They can also just lay eggs.

    Use a small flat container, like a baby food jar lid. Cut a piece of sponge to fit in the lid and thenfill it with water. This way they can get a drink without drowning.

    You shouldnt have to give them any type of water. They will get all the moisture they need to get through their first instar, from the mother. As for offering water when they are away from mom, they will get all moisture from the food. If you really feel as though they need a drink (worried like me) you can spray a little bit of distilled water on the side of the deli tubs you should be keeping them in. But never more than once every 2 weeks. And make sure the water will evaporate with in 4 to 6 hours, so to reduce the risk of mycosis. You can go to http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/forum or http://www.arachnoboards.com. Both places have alot of information.
    Hope this helps.

Ugh, call me a size-queen, but I just don't see the joy in tiny breeds. I just got a beautiful female emperor, and a flatrock will be my next venture!

    The flat rock is larger and not the bite so that is a good thing. Probably a real dumb question but these two can't be together... right?

When I lived in oklahoma I actually had found a scorpion that looked like a flat rock scorpion but with dark red markings on its sides and it's weird I can't find any records of anything like it so I don't know strange. If you find any thing let me know it would definitely clear my mind.

I have owned 2 of these. The one I have currently is a 2 inch female (not including the tail). She has pinched me once. It was a hard pinch. I have held her numerous times and she has not yet made an effort to sting me. She is skittish at first but soon settles down.
If you have an chance to get one GET IT. In my own personal opinion if you want something more "unpredictable" than an emperor scorpion this is it. I am not going to lie to you, they can and will sting if mishandled. But from what I heard from a friend of mine, it is more discomfort that actual pain!

To anyone that reads this. I am 15 and have had a few scorpions. They can be aggressive and they can be docile. But the main thing i noticed is that they are like snow flakes. You never get two alinke. I have a Malaysian forest scorpion and it is the most friendless thing in the world. Its all about how its brought up from a baby.

    Do you breed your own scorpions then? It would be cool to get some info on that.
  • Gordon - 2012-11-28
    The parents did know. We just dediecd it was safer than other things you could have tried like going to look for lions or swimming in the river with hippos.

Hello! I have a leopard gecko since 1 month and It's eating well, I give him crickets and worms with vitamins, but this last days I see him turning kind of white, It's not color brightening anymore, kind of mate and I'm very concerned because I don't know much about disorders of these reptiles, can anyone help me find out what is going on please?

    This is normal, it's just the way geckos look before they shed their skin which they do regularly as they grow, his colour should be back to normal after he has shed. Just make sure you provide him with a humid hide to make shedding easier.
  • Brenda Cain - 2011-09-01
    Most likely he is ready to shed and when the old skin is gone he will be very bright again. I have two blizzard geckos and they are the sweetest little guys ever.They get really pale when they shed but not for long.Good luck
  • micky - 2011-09-23
    It sounds like its shedding. It's normal dontworrie about it.
  • ds - 2011-10-30

  • Brooke - 2012-06-27
