Raising scorpions


One of Boa’s many projects is to raise field-collected Centruroides sp. and create a large terrarium at this house, where he can shine a black light on them (chemicals in scorpion exoskeletons fluoresce under UV light) and wow some tourists.  He’s had two successfully reproducing females.  Here’s the latest batch; all of the babies are still attached to the mother.  The juveniles of the other (not pictured) have begun to explore on their own.
