Pandinus cavimanus are aggressive.

Hadrurus arizonensis are ready to attack/sting prey at every opportunity they get.

FThey are good sized for Vaejovis. Bout the same as average C. vittatus. Very aggressive.
Very fast. Desert sp. Reported to squirt venom when tonged sometimes. I had a mother give birth this last summer. Seem hardy to me.

You have any for sale and how do you set up a five gallon because don't they need a cool and warm side? I would think the tank would all be warm

Not right now. I plan to go hunting in the desert once it warms up a bit. I've been going out here now, but its so cold, they aren't out. I was literally black lighting an hour ago. Smile

But Yeah, hopefully within a month.

They can handle warm and cold. It's freezing or near it now there. There probably in deep burrows that are a bit warmer, but not real warm. During the summer it gets 100+, maybe 110 there. But again, they are in deep burrows where it's a little cooler.

I would aim for winter temps whatever you like. Summers should probably be a little warmer, unless you like it hot. I would keep their cage no higher that 90* F though.

I think everyone should start out with a tropical sp where possible.

hey if you want to buy some desert species try this site: http://www.shopspiderpharm.com/servlet/Categories?category=Scorpions

it's the cheapest I've ever seen for H. arizonensis and spinigerus

I also suggest a tropical species as a starter too. I think they're more fun to care for, but that's just me.

I don't think anyone has V. intermedius right now... I could be wrong though. If someone has them, It won't hurt my feelings if you get them from them. I won't be getting that many of them anyway. Couple dozen max. So no big deal if you do find them. It will be a month hopefully for me to start finding them... Smile
