Im curious to know anything anyone has to say about one of these speciments. I dont know if its already been asked or not but if it has please just ignore this thread or delete. I would like to start by asking what type of terrain it lives in? Is it desert or just like the emperors and likes it humid, etc.

Very hot temperatures, very low humidity. Like to hide in between rocks and slate in small crevices. Dry terrain, mix of coco fibre and or gravel type sand ( ask someone else on that).
Non - communal.
Do not burrow.

Errm, well thats all i can think of at the moment Smile

We have a caresheet for that species here, but Binky pretty much summed it up. They're a neat species but really slow-growing and really hard to raise from slings in captivity. One of our members was successful (LadyRiotControl) but her experience is somewhat of an exception. Someone gave me 11 2I, two lived to 3I, and the last one died a month ago.

Yea they like it toasty warm, and slate rock is definitely the recommended hide for these. They are very partial to it...

Someone once experimented and was mildly successful with a tank that had LOTS of hides available, but that doesn't seem to be the norm.

Not at all. You just can't leave them unsupervised for too long.

i would say that she hasnt filled in the entrance, more like she was digging deeper, and the dirt is just piled at the entrance of her hole... mine do it when they dig too. so i just pull the dirt out

Antmac, rather than change the direction of an established thread, why not post your own?

Anyway, to answer your question, scorps just do that. It's nothing to be alarmed by. It's also possible that it's getting ready to molt, so don't disturb it.

Hi, I posted some experiences I had with Hadogenes paucidens... I also noted some housing details for anyone considering of keeping 2 or 3 together...

http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/breeding-reports-f19/hadogenes-paucidens-t4230.htm

Mating pairs can be kept together for a "while," to give them time to get jiggy wid it... but its females especially super large ones that are not very tolerant with tank mates.

The setups I depicted here seemed to work best....

Cork bark doesn't really do it for these scorps like stone and rocks. These can be dry but they like to lap up dewlets fromthe side of the glass...

Hope that helps

Real hobbyist always used scientific names... though Southtern Flat-Rock or Banded Flat-rock works for Hadogenes paucidens, it can refer to any number of different flat-rock species found in Lower Africa.

The other common variety is Hadogenes troglodytes which is also known as Flat-Rock Scorpion. I'm not trying to play whose the bigger bug geek... But this will be a real nightmare if you get a male H. troglodytes to mate with your female H. paucidens; resulting in death of the male - both conveniently labeled in many indifferent and uncaring pet stores just as... "Flat-Rock Scorpion" (cue symphonic exclamation)

Now if you wanna avoid occasional confusion, erroneous misinterpretation or getting plain ripped off, learn the scientific name... not hard if you can pronounce Tyrannosaurus Rex (also a scientific name)

Che Guevara once said, "Knowing how to read and write fluently is a minimum requirement for revolutionary and/or human being living in society. A soldier, civilian or community that is illiterate will be easily deceived through the written word by higher powers and unscrupulous government bodies who will not hesitate to exploit this weakness the very second they find it available... such is the world we live in...."

Take Care hehe
