Hi there everyone!

So... I have these two enclosures, and I really like the way I decorated them:





I was supposed to get about 10 Euscorpius sp. from a friend, who would catch them for me during his holiday in Croatia. However, he let me know that he couldn't find any... so now I have these 2 enclosures with nothing to put in them. It might still change, but my hopes are pretty low, regarding the fact that they'll drive back to the Netherlands tomorrow.

I'm planning a long weekend to the area near Pavia, Italy, combined with a visit to the Côte d'Azur in Southern France, to catch some Euscorpius sp. and Buthus sp. myself.. but that will take a long time (April next year, maybe even later).

Do you guys have any suggestions for species that I could keep in these enclosures, without having to change anything? Preferably some communal species (though that's not the most important demand), and not overtly "dangerous".

By the way: I checked the rocks and tiles, and found out that they can't fall down and crush a scorpion in any possible way. The vivarium on the windowsill will be moved to another place: I just put it there to dry out the substrate (cocopeat). I will place water dishes when I have acquired some new inhabitants.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Emiel, do the enclosures have any supplemental heat, or can you easily add mats or lamps?

Hi there,

I have a few heat mats and a few lamps that I can place virtually anywhere Smile After a careful test, I discovered that it's quite easy to raise the temperature to about 26/30 degrees Celsius (it depends on the room temperature as well, obviously).

So yeah, that's no problem Smile

I must admit that I've already ordered 5 Babycurus jacksoni instar 2/3. I will raise them separately, and place them together in these enclosures when they're adults. Despite the fact that I liked the way I decorated them, I'll have to change them to suit the needs of my new additions. Some pieces of bark, etc.

Maybe dry the substrate a little then a Hadogenes sp. should be a nice addition to that enclosure Very Happy

Great idea! I'll put it in the larger one, where it should do fine! The substrate is as dry as a bone Smile
