I'm wondering if you could help me? I need some info on Giant Tailless Whip Scorpion. Are they communal can I have more then one in an enclosure? Would two be OK in a 20 gal high tank? I keep reading conflicting info. I need someone who knows what their talking about to give it to me straight. Thanks for any info you can give me. Amy

My whip scorpion hasnt had much of an appetite at all. It used to a couple crickets once a week but now it wont go near them. It seems like its scared of them or maybe something is wrong. Does anyone know? And if something is wrong how can i get it back to healthy? All the temps and humidity levels are correct btw.

     Prey size and type can sometimes make a difference for these guys. I've also read this, feed 'Turkistan roaches (slightly smaller than the body length of your whippling). Oriental roach is also preferred. American roach, okay but not as great,' and possibly goblin roaches may work.

    It could be getting ready to go into a molt. They will usually stop eating before going into a molt, do some research and observe the critters behavior. If it is going into a molt you want to leave it alone because disturbing any creature during a molt can kill it.

I got a whip scorpion recently and later noticed one of his pedipalps is broken. do you think that could be a problem or can he live without it? i'm a bit afraid whether he'll be able to feed himself, he seems to be a bit shy when a cricket gets close..

    I think he'll still be able to feed himself, as he still has one working pedipalp. Like other arachnids, these guys go through molts to grow. The pedipalp will probably re-grow at that time, though I'm not absolutely sure.

I bought a baby tailless whip yesterday but am not sure on it's sex. Does anyone know how i can find out how to sex him/her, any information on their breeding, as well as any other useful info.

    You can tell it's sex if the pedipalps on the front of its face are long and pass the first knee on the front walking legs. That would mean it's male, if female the pedipalps will be shorter and generally have more spines. Hope I helped.

How many crickets should you feed a tailless whip scorpion?

    They don't happen to be really big eaters so if you feed them 2 - 3 crickets a couple times a week that should do it.  If they only eat one - it is OK.  If they eat all 3, then I would go to feeding them 4 crickets.  You will be able to judge better by the feeding habits.
