one heterometrus spinifer about an inch long will do in small kritter keeper but fill the substrate half way and make sure you keep it moist and i guess warm if your in a cold country.

The growth rate will depend on food intake... and molting will be easier with the right humidity conditions... give it a bottle cap for water... but also pour water into the substrate and spray the kritter down to have droplets on the sides... keep it in the dark... give it a hide and let it burrow as much as it wants...

all sorpions are generally nocturnal but if you want to see them use red light because they can't see that color spectrum and will think its all dark?

hmmm.... if he's smaller than most cricket, you might wanna crush their heads before you chuck it front of him....

They are tropical mesic environment species... so don't let the container dry out... it must be kept humid and moist....

Ok... first of all, moist is good... just don't make rain puddles.

Normally, babies this size would still be with mom and its siblings in a sub-social colony. They grew faster with this support system. All you have to do is be patient... you're its one and only guardian for now.... lol.

For feeding, just pace the frequency with how much the scorp will take. If it looks bloated, then its time to cut back. These babies are known to have one mealworm in each claw will mulching 3 to a pulp in its mouthparts...

Cheers...

Enjoy your pet....

P.S. All scorpions are nocturnal
