Howdy,

This seemed a good place to start my journey with the forum. What would you folks reccomend for a begginner scorpion? Something simple and epic all at once. Although I have yet to see a scorpion I didn't think was epic. Thanks all.

P. Imperator, H. Spinifer and there is another desert species I hear is good. As long as your heads on right you'll be fine.

Bedlam mentioned two good ones.i could vouch for the emperor,never had the other.
the other desert species he speaks of is the giant desert hairy hadrurus arizonensis. emps are pet holes meaning you wont see em much.dunno bout the spinifer and the hairy will be out alot come nightfall.

OP: What part of the region of the world are you from? I'm in Arizona, so its way easier for me to keep desert species then it is to keep an Emp, just due to general humidity etc... For the most part scorps are straight forward!

Cheers,

Rob

nice choice.i think everyone loves their emps. heres a good caresheet to get you started.
i dont think it mentions a false bottom though as they are quite useful.

along with the ones already listed, any Hadogenes sp. are great beginer scorps, they have very little up keep and have long life spans.
