December litter of B. jacksoni are molting again. Believe this will make them 4th instar.

Here's a blacklight picture of a young Tityus stigmurus

Interesting thing about this last picture is that it is the old exoskeleton from one of mine that molted yesterday. It still retains its fluorescent properties but the scorpion itself doesn't regain the ability to fluoresce for a couple of days or so. Least I think it's interesting:o

Huh 4 days aye? Odd and neat for sure :)

Out of curiousness, are the jacksoni very handleable?

Well... let say... they are not inoffensive... but because they are buthids, a family containing majority of the most toxic scorpions... people don't even bother trying to.

Although Babycurus jacksoni are not medically significant.

So it must be whatever it is that makes the exoskeleton hard that fluoresces I guess.That is interesting.
