Do you have this species? I would like to learn about his caring. How decorate terrarium for this scorpion?

Hi,

I use soil which I took from my mother's garden mixed with sand for substrate. The scorpions are able to dig deep burrows and they love it. The temps are about 25-30C in summer and I keep them rather dry.

Cheers,
Peter

And if I'll use sand from a beach and some little stones? Is it good for substrate?
And how long is lifespan for males?
Sorry for my bad English.

Sand from the beach should be okay, but I would mix it with some soil.
There are no life history studies published about this species. But because they are very slow growing I assume that males and females life 10 years or longer.

Doesn't beach sand have a lot of salt in it? You may want to rinse it first (put it on some fabric as a strainer and wash it to remove the salt).

Good advice Mike. I didn't think about that. We don't have any beaches here in Austria. Very Happy

@Pulmonoscorpius: they are not difficult to care for in my experience. Only veeeery slow growing. One molt a year even in early instars is normal.

Yes we have three Euscorpius species in Austria. They can only be found in the South and I live in the North. Sad But a trip to the South is planned for this year. Hopefully I can find a few Smile

It depends on where you would live in Israel and where the scorpion was collected. At the coast it can get pretty cold and in the southern and eastern parts of the land it's hot.

I suppose that it gets a lot warmer in the desert during the day than in Tel-Aviv, especially in winter. Do you keep the scorpion at room temperature at the moment? How warm is it? The scorpion won't die if you keep it only at 20-25C but it will grow a lot slower. Or if it's a gravid female gestation periode will be longer.

Maybe during the day there is a little bit warmer, because in Tel-Aviv is more moist. But in winter there is colder during the night.

"you keep the scorpion at room temperature at the moment?"
No, I'll have it next week.

"The scorpion won't die if you keep it only at 20-25C but it will grow a lot slower."
I think in Negev the winter nights are much colder than 20 C.

BTW, how to get rid of the salt in the beach sand?

Yes that's true. Not only in winter but also in summer I suppose. But I was talking about the daytime temps. I mainly keep Parabuthus species from southern Africa and in winter the night temps are 0C or lower in some areas. But during the day the sun heats up these places to 25-30C in winter. It's impossible to simulate this temperature range in captivity.
I keep my Nebo species at 25-30C during day and 15-20C during night.

This range of temperature is here now. So I think that's ok. Thanks for your answers.

No problem, I'm glad that I could help you. Don't get stung from your new scorp! The members of the genus Nebo are all very aggressive. Wink

For removing salt, try lining a pasta strainer with fabric (like a handkerchief or similar) and just rinsing it under running water.

I have read scorpions need sometimes to sprinkle water. But some people say that is not right. How is it in real?

Too much water for a desert species will cause fungal infections. Either use no water at all, or sprinkle just a little bit once per week (or less) on one side of the enclosure.

If it was me. I would put a FEW drops on one side of the tank...maybe once a week....more likely once every two weeks. They get their water most of the time from their food

You dont want to risk mycosis. That kills
