What is BioScorpion? Introducing BioScorpion
BioScorpion is a upcoming organization aimed at providing habitats for ants, other insects and arachnids. The habitats are intended to be a beautiful center piece for your home, but built to simulate their natural environment, while also giving people the ability to clearly observe and study the inhabitant (s).
Although I have been working on creating habitats for some species of insects and arachnids, the primary focus recently has been on formicarium's and myrmecology. During the past several months I have been working through prototypes and testing the formicarium builds with random species of ants to ensure the formicarium's serve as a reliable and sustainable habitat for ant colonies. We have connected with museums and pet stores within our state and have pending agreements to display and sell our formicarium's within their establishments. Although we are not necessarily a "store" we are intending to sell our formicarium's and other habitats after thorough testing. However that could be as far out as July of 2022 as the creation and testing takes months. As well it should be noted that we do not intend or expect to profit financially from our creations. Due to the unfortunate amount of materials and time it takes for testing, it would be unrealistic to suggest we would have a significant profit. However through sales it will be enough to keep us moving, studying and changing the hobby.
As stated, release dates are not yet confirmed. However I'm in the testing phase of a few several month long builds. So hopefully we see them sooner than later. Some of the formicarium's have been designed to have integrated natural lighting, while also maintaining hydration points and a natural look. At the same time we are maintaining a beautiful look from the outside to create that center piece look. There's a lot of things to consider when building habitats, especially for ants. Anyone who has attempted to create a formicarium knows that it is nearly impossible to build a formicarium that is sustainable, convenient and that looks nice. On top of all that, I have been working towards creating them entirely unique to other builds you've seen which just further complicates things. Certain designs have been recreated nine times and still had a flaw of some kind. Once agreements are met with with the museums and pet stores, those will become priority which is why the release dates for the website and products are estimated to be released as far as between May and July of 2022. However they will be coming and all updates will be posted to this forum.
