!!!! THIS SCORPION IS ONE OF THE MOST VENOMOUS ON THE PLANET !!!!

Genus: Leiurus
Species: Quinquestriatus
(Sub-Species: hebreus)

Common Name(s): Death Stalker, Israeli Deathstalker, Arabian deathstalker, Deathstalker,

LOCATION:Africa (Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia) and Asia (Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, lebanon, Oman, Quatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Yemen).

Substrate: 3-6 inches of sand moistened as set to dry for optimal burrowing. DRY substrate.

LD value: 0.16 - 0.50 mg/kg!

Type of Scorpion; Dry burower. Does not dig tunnels but will make it's own hides. Usually under rocks.

Adult size: 3.5-4.5 Inches.

Growth: Medium to fast. Usually under a year to mature.

Temp: 80-95F But can handle low temps.

Humidity:55-65(just dry substrate)

Temperament: Can vary but usually very nervous.

Decorations: Like any kind of rock it can dig under to make burrow. Usally a flat rock works best to allow for mating.

Comunal: Yes but if adults. Juveniles tend to canabalize during molting periods.

Housing: Floor space is important If housing one a Kritter keeper can be used i recomend a min of a 5 gallon for 2-3 Lq's and a ten for 5-8. They also like to burrow so a minimum of 3 inches of substrate is required. For hides just throw in rocks large enough to cover the scorpion they will make they're own burrow.

I own a male and a gravid female that both live in the same 10 gallon with 2 hides and have no problems. When the babies arrive I will seperate them when the time comes.

A few questions since I'm getting 5 of them soon.

1) What would be the smallest sized container that I could house a 3i in?
2) How long does it usually take in between molts if kept at ~80F and fed a cricket once a week?
3) Do you absolutely HAVE to do the wet sand packing thing? Or can I just stick some sand in the enclosure with some broken pieces of a clay pot to dig a scrape under?

Thanks Smile

1. Large sized delicups should be more than enough.
2. Hard to say EXACTLY but 1-2 months sounds about right.
3. You don't HAVE too but they prefer building burrows than hiding under objects. Theyll do it if they dont have a choice but they are less likely to breed like that. Since there not adults I dont see why not. But it really doesnt take a lot of time to pack it.

Large sized deli cups.. About how big are they in inches (diameter/height)?

As for #3, I'll just wait until they mature and I can keep them communally in one enclosure to do the sand packing bit.

I'm buying the 5 from EVIL_DWELLER on here Smile
