Well, I can tell you that heat requirements are minimal, as the UK is a rather temperate country.

If this genus's behavior is as similar to Uroctonus as their morphology is, then handling probably results in a couple of minutes of ambling around your hand followed by becoming increasingly edgy while looking for somewhere to hide. I doubt that stings are very common or very painful.

Keep in mind, what I've just said is mostly conjecture based on my experience with similar scorpions. Lisa and Graham have actually kept this species.

1) only one established colony in the UK. Several attempts have been made to establish the colony elsewhere to a safer place but as yet this move has been unsuccessful

2) only handling I have done is when rehousing. Personally I prefer not to hold scorpions other than for show and tell days / rehoming

3)room temp would be fine for a captive bred specimen, otherwise if WC refer to locality information for temps and humidity. I kept mine on lightly damp substrate with a load of slate for hiding places

4)

think they were 4i here - one died through bad moult :S


Just matured XD, but sadly it died for no rhyme or reason ... grrrr

Well no its not that there hard to keep, I mean they manage to live in our country , It needs more looking into really, but they just dont seem to do that great in captivity but it was probably down to bad luck mine and Lisas were related so I guess its possible that there
just weak
