Average Growth: Slow growth, 1.5 - 2.5 inches
Origin: Middle eastern and African deserts
Humidity and Temperature: 74 - 80% Humidity, 26-
Behaviour: Aggressive and nervous.
Has a low potency level therefore making it a good scorpion for intermediate keepers. Although it is reluctant to sting, it
will willingly pinch.
Housing: Plastic or glass tank at
least 4 times longer than the scorpion. Provide at least 3 inches desert sand or dry peat. A wide shallow water dish can be
provided. Mist lightly every 2-3 days.
Scorpions molt (shed their exoskeleton) to grow. At this point, they are very vulnerable so make sure to remove any
crickets in the tank and leave the scorpion alone. Increase the tank's humidity to ease the scorpion's molt.
