PostSubject: help identify please sold to me as a "texas yellow"   2/10/2010, 10:54 pm

i received this scorp from a dealer who simpily called it a "texas yellow" so i know its from either texas or or another down south area, but am not sure what its tank should be set up like,temp,or humidity. the pics arnt great but you can see the basic figure and a little design, for what you cant see he is yellow/tan with darker rings from his tail to his head and is about an inch. i was told he would only get about two inches mabye a little larger, but please help me identify him and what his habitat should be thank you

Honestly I can't tell - wait for one of the others.

If it is a desert scorp, then really it needs sand and not soil.

I don't think that is a centruroides. It looks kind of like some of our Vaejovis species...But scorpions are hard to I.D. from pictures sometimes, and this is still a bit blurry..

How big is it's body without the metasoma (tail)? Do you know how old it is?

Well, if that's two molts in it's whole life so far, that isn't one of the micro vaejovids. Still could be a bigger Vaejovis. Maybe a parauroctonus.

Thing is, without better picture (s), you are going to have to do some searching yourself, because only you can really see it. If you click on the link below, and scroll down to texas. Then click on the genus names. Look at the pics it has for those species from texas. Google the ones it doesn't. Remember though, some change color over time, like D. lindo....
Anyway, if that is a Texas species, it is most likely one from genus Vaejovis or Parauroctonus.
With the Texas list of those genus' in the website below, you don't have much searching to do to get a better idea, maybe you could narrow it down, then we could go from there? Don't underestimate the power of a good picture though, thousand words and all. Smile ~r

It doesn't look like any Texas Centruroides!

Actually, there is only one in Texas. C. vittatus, it has many color forms, but none of them look like that!

Other U.S. centruroides are: C. exilicauda, C. gracilis, C. hentzi, C. sculturatus and C. guaninenis Smile 6 of them.

Can't wait for new pics! wohoo!

Also FYI the pet guy said he could be from anywhere in the south that's just what they named it and there by no means professional I don't know much about scorps but I know more than them so if there is a scorp somewhere else south that it looks like than it could be it

Yeah. Keep it on the dryer side. Give it a water dish. Give it a hide. You will be good for a while. Just don't mist hardly at all. The coco will absorb it and slowly release it as humidity.
Keep it dry, and you will be fine for a while. ~r

Any updates? I've been scorpion hunting in the dry areas of west Texas and it resembles the Vaejovis spp. found in that area . . . my best suggestion is do an image search for "vaejovis" and "hoffimanus". You may find a match.

As has been stated, Vaejovis do best when kept dry and warm, but offer a little bit of moisture from time to time.
