    The minions molted into 2nd instars by 8-30-2011






    The minions are ready to face a dog-eat-dog (or is it scorp-eat-scorp?) world. As for now, they are under the refuge of their mother.

    09-01-2011








    Noted behaviors:
    08-20-2011
    Female takes a deep "urge" to pop, now in position and in process of giving birth.

    08-22-2011
    After giving birth, 1 sling somehow ventured in the chelicarae of the mother, thus stimulates the mother to eat it.

    1st instars appear violet under the UV light. Possible due to its white colour of their soft exoskeleton.

    08-28-2011
    1st instars in the process of molting to 2nd instars

    2nd instars are now starting to glow green in the black-light or UV light.

    09-01-2011
    2nd instars started to climb down and up back again to their mother's back. They don't stray too far to their mother.


    09-02-2011
    If disturbed, the slings climb back to their mother and some hide under her. In unison.

    After misting, all of them (includes mother) "licked" the droplets on the glass slides and somehow "dived" the substrate for water.
    [The substrate's quite dry for sometime as to not to disturb the mother carrying the brood]

    They started feeding last night. I have to separate the mom, as so not to crush the slings. Early this morning, I find their bellies full already and is now pushing for 3rd instar. LOL

    Containers:

    [Black for the tier 1 brood; Clear cups for selling/giving]




    Update:

    09-19-2011

    Out of 17 slings, 10 are sold and now with their respective lords. :happy:

    Out of the 7 that is still under my supervision, I choose 3 slings that is subject for study.

    I named them Tier 1 brood [T1] from their Mother [Succubi]

    Individually, I gave them names. I can distinguish them through their sizes and labels.


    Judith is the most promising among the brood, I always see "her" busy digging and walking.

    Brena is such a voracious eater.

    Magdalena is a sluggish and somehow "small" compared to her broodmates.

    Observation:

    I presume that they were all females, lest they turned to adults.

    I find Judith more of like a possible male, though not sure. It's like "c'mon, I can't determine sex @ 2nd instar!" and It's quite ridiculous! haha~ anyways, I noticed she has longer chela, that's why.

    I choose these three so that I can document their growth and to write a caresheet for them. I also would like to grab the chance of proving the circulating issue regarding Parthenogenesis and Hermaphrodism among them species, specifically Heterometrus Longimanus. I'm no scientist but one of my group's goals is to help one.
