Hello everyone,
I need some scorpion for an upcoming zoology class project.  I am having some trouble finding some in my area.  I live in San Diego and i have seen them around on few occasions, so i know they are there.  I have a UV flashlight but haven't had any luck finding any at night.  There are a few canyons near my house, would i find them there?  Any information will help.  I appreciate the time you took to read this.  I am also interested in getting an Emperor Scorpion as a Pet, so if you have any advice I'd like to hear it.
Thanks!

go out at night bring one regular flashlight and UV flashlight check out the canyons near your house but do a scout on the canyons before you go out at night there just like any other animal they need food (prey) and water i find most of mine where i live in a grape fruit grove make sure when you go out at night its not to cold you may need to wait till it warms up i wish i can be of more help but im only familiar with scorps in arizona

you could also lure one out by poking a very skinny twig in the holes. turning over some stones under bushes usually yields results in finding one as well.

good luck! Very Happy

I was able to catch 4 baby scorpions. Crickets are larger than they are so what should I feed them?

What kind of baby scorpions are they?

Pinhead crickets, cricket legs, 1mm sized cut mealworms will also do. Even a crushed superworm is a feast for communal babies.
