Has anyone kept this sp or very similar and can they tell me what sort of set up they had/have.

Have one due to arrive on monday and can find bugger all info on these little fella's!

I have done a peat/vermiculite mix as main substrate with a few pea size aquarium stones and some tree bark. also put in a small exo-terra cave and water bowl (filled with stones so the scorp wont drown) Thought this was a safe bet until i could get more info

cheers Smile

My general advice would be to put them in an over sized container. Something that would be a bit bigger than what you'd normally put it in. Then put moist peat/coir on one side and dry peat/coir on the other side. Both with similar hides and see which side it prefers.

I'm willing to bet that they prefer the moist side. I would make the temps about...80-85F

Hi,

please don't keep this species too hot! 30C is definitely too warm for these little scorpions. Urophonius granulatus is found in the very south of Argentina in the province Santa Cruz. I have two links for you with climatic diagrams for this part of Argentina.

Comodore Rivadavia: this town is a bit north of the province but there's no other diagram available for this area.

Rio Gallegos: this town is in the south of the province.

The average temperature doesn't even reach the 20C mark in summer. So keep them cool Wink


Cheers,
Peter

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

thats the first info i have received on them. I only have the one, it arrived this morning. I put it into a 6" critter keeper because its sooo dinky, 2cm if that! Feisty little male I didn't realist they tagged so readily!

I've been keeping it room temperature because its defo warm enough in out flat. on a hot day its 26 degrees and about 18 degrees on the night. It is situated in the cooler end of the room so I recon it will be ok.

Once again many thanks you're a star xxx
