troggys are harder to find, grats!

keep him on coco/sand, thats what i did before mine died of nematodes
alot of flat rocks and places to hide in them.
they need 50-60% humidity, so just open room air is fine
and heat, i cannot stress this enough, they love to be warm
they are desert scorps (kinda), but easy enough to care for

they also dont eat as often as emps Very Happy
so good luck!

You can tell if it is H.Paucidens by the yellow bands on it's back. If it is H.Troglodytes, it will be a rusty colour with no yellow bands across it's tergites.

A female = Very short tail
A male = Very long tail
