they are teensy, keep them on the cool side (around 70F) and keep them dry.

they look pretty awesome.. mabye you'll be lucky and get a gravid female or summink.

these scorpions and bothriurids in general do not like high temps. infact, if it gets to high for them to handle, they may die. they prefer it around the 70 - 75 mark.

keep them in the coolest part of your room basically.

in the wild they rarely live in temperatures higher than 16degrees C

I kept these not so long ago but my room was too warm for them and they ended up dying, including a gravid female.

they will burrow slightly, but the females are more likely to do the burrowing, the males are happy enough digging out a scrape under a small piece of cork bark.

males are very small and thin, females are larger and stockier. The males also have a little tubicle on the inside of their peds. basically looks like a zit lmao!

spray once or twice a week, keep damp but not wet. for substrate i recomend a sand / coir mix of about 50/50. you will need 2" max.

if you do a search on the forum I have a couple of previous threads on this species

Are those the wood pgmy scorpions? Very nice markings. I like the little species more and more. I am getting a Pandinus Miliataris next for a larger single species. Then a H. Spadix...then I will chill for a bit. After that week I'm going to get a... clown

I've a Bothriurus spp. and I keep her in a little bit of peat/coco/sand/tiny pebbles @ room temps and she's doin fine. I've pieces of cork bark and board in there for her to hide in/under. Also a cap for a water dish Smile
