Tips for Care

  • Heat is generally not required, they naturally become less active during winter if kept cool.
  • Moist sand/coco fibre mix substrate is recommended. Spray the enclosure to ensure it stays moist. 
  • Adults scorpions do not need to feed often, check on them to remove and replace dead/left over crickets/roaches. Juveniles may need to feed more often. 
  • This scorpion prefers having a rock or piece of bark to burrow and hide under if the substrate is not deep. 
  • Scorpions are not short lived pets- some species can live up to 8 years or more.
  • Do not house this scorpion with other animals or scorpions.

It is the buyers responsibility to be fully prepared to receive scorpions and care for them to ensure success. If you are unsure or are new to scorpions, there are many resources if you look up this species.
