alright, I've got 2 of these guys and between what info I've gathered to how I keep them I will share. I know that there are no care sheets floating around for these guys and info is hard to come by. for the most part I go by what is mentioned for the care for Mesobuthus Martensii and apply my personal knowledge of more tropical species. hope this info helps. if I had more of them I'd be able to do further study and provide more info but at this time all I'm keeping is the 2.

Common Name: Chinese Swimming Scorpion
Scientific Name: Lychas Mucronatus
Type: Arboreal, but I have found them to be light burrowers - one of mine is digging under the log I have sticking out of the substrate and comes out when there is commotion.
Growth Rate: Fast
Size: 2" - 2.5"
Venom: 3
Temperament: Medium
Temp: 75-85 F
Humidity: 75-80%
Substrate: I use a mix of coco fiber and sand, it maintains humidity well. about 3" deep. give them some bark to climb on, cork bark works best as with any arboreal sp. I also have lava rocks and a small rock water dishes with about an inch of water in it.
Housing: A 5gal tank is fine. I'm using Rubbermaid containers as temporary housing until I get off my bum and cut the Acrylite and make a shelf.
Communal: Yes, for the most part - cannibalism can happen as juvies. they can co-habitate with mesobuthus martensii
Notes: Gorgeous species. known to breed like rabbits even with scorplings still riding piggyback. they like to hide and allegedly like to soak in water (I have not witnessed them taking interest in soaking or swimming so I cannot attest to this)

Thank you Rasputin. Chinese Bark Scorpion is another commonly used name for this species. =)



This is the mother of my soon-to-be scorpions. Guaranteed Mucronatus?
