Comments: Close up photos of a scorpion and its exuviae


Today, at the end of the day we went out to buy a set of plastic boxes, sand and other stuff, so I could give one of my scorpions a bigger enclosure. I had moved it out of its terrarium made of glass because I needed a place for the tarantula spider I captured yesterday.

just so you know Exuviae is not a word, it is Exuvia for one and Exuvium for pl.

sorry hit post to soon... ugg hate that.

anyhow with the spelling i spent a lot of time looking this up because i was confused and all my entomology text spell it Exuvia.

now on the net i have found it with an "e" on the end but i tend to go with the printed books.

Good luck!

I have a paper on Centruroides gracilis that also spells it as exuvia, and I originally used that spelling. After checking with Google and other sources I decided to use exuviae instead.

Thanks for the compliment on the pictures, I really hope to have a better camera soon.

Few days ago I checked with Wikipedia this time, and decide to go with their defintion: exuvia (plural: exuviae).
