both of these scorpions are bothriuruids, from chile I belive. these species and genera in general seem to be more sensitive to captive conditions than other species, sudden changes seem to be pretty bad for them.

they should be kept relatively cool, around 70* 78* at most.. and they should be kept dry. probably a substrate of coco fibre would be fine, I think Brachistosternus likes to burrow to some extent though.

thanks
i ordered then earlier this evening

i know the temps, feeding and housing requirments but ive never really heard much more..

i am a bit worried now, if their not good with sudden changes... are they going to be ok in the post :S
the place ive ordered them from has a good reputation as far as im aware but the last scorp i ordered did pass away 2 months ish after receiving him? so didnt know whether i could blame it on the delivery or just being unlucky...

i have a negrei and he seems to do alright in the conditions stated before, does a fair amount of digging and eats like a pig, it is also fairly active so you get more scorp for your money than you might with an emp
great lookin scorp and good luck with it Smile

Just a tip, I know your new but try to make an effort to use scientific names since black back scorpion is the common name and can be used for many other species. Not trying to force you into anything it just helps for people to better understand you in the future. Don't worry you'll pick it up most people here more know latin names than they do common names.

i know quite a few scientific names, its just a habbit with the common name fore me Smile

also, the only prob i do have with the scientific names is prenouncing them... so can you help out with Brachistosternus negrei?

ive seen other names on the internet with help but not a clue with this one!!

thanks for the info guys Smile

well, this is the way I would pronounce it;

Brach - esto - sternus knee - grei.

obviously it varies and such between accents and such.

I can pronounce a few... I know many from all the stuff I learned from these forums and centain books, but I can't pronounce the majority of them because I don't use them apart from typing on the computer...I guess thats why lol.

once you get into it, the names get easier to pronounce.

I dont know if i pronounce all the names right, I just stand corrected at shows when someone tells me how it should be said lol.
But some of them can be tongue twisters!

I seriously couldn't get my tongue around 'cyriopagapus' (tarantula) for ages so I just called ours snagglepuss!

I don't think there is any particular way to pronounce them, I think it's all accents. I use my "loch" ability in some names lol.

Even the experts can't agree on pronunciation, so don't worry about it.
