Hottentotta hottentotta

I know I sound like a broken record whenever I say, “I’ve been meaning to post this up for awhile,” in fact almost a month since my dear friend rafiqos gave me a H. hottentotta for my 30th – Cheers bro.

I’ve heard so much about them i.e. being one of several parthenogenic buthid species with an attitude of infamous proportions; a short temper matched by the speed of its strike. I had them before but sadly my prior 3rd instars easily succumbed to ants that once plagued my house; a treachery ultimately dissolved with bait poison. I am thus thankful to be a proud owner of this species once more.


As always the coloration of young buthids lends to their popularity and their hardiness is nonetheless a grateful bonus, particularly for savannah types.

Apparently, I’ve been messing around with housing options ranging from toothpick dispensers to various-sized cookie jars.

This treasured gift came to me as a 3rd instar so basically I’m picking up where I left off – thanks again rafiq.

I took some blacklight shots of it as it approached molting which I missed out on, touché.

Nevertheless, I’m just as happy that it successfully reached 4th instar in my care. Like anyone else; I hope for it to reach the point when it is capable of self-procreation.


Being in Malaysia, our humidity can be adversely problematic for desert and dry/climate species. This and my unfamiliarity with scorpion species of those biotypes, means that any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I hope my currently used substrate and choice ‘furniture’ is appropriate... Cheers

The first few picture got me scared. The enclosure looked almost heterometrus-damp. But the last picture gave me a relief. Razz

Nice scorpion Alex. I hope she gives you babies. Imagine having a communal hottentotta tank! Drool
