A mate has just asked me if I know what this is.
His neighbour "apparently" went to Mexico on holiday and this scorpion was in his sock when he unpacked. Personally I'm taking this with a pinch of salt.
The name he has got for it is "Mexican Red Claw" but TBH I think that's just made up.
Anyway, she dropped babies and he has given her/ them to Graham.
They said they've had a look through scorpion files and think its a Tityus obscurus.
Doesnt this come from Brazil though?
Shes about 2" body.
I can ask him for more pics if they'll help.
So, any ideas?

Oh, and care tips?

Centruroides nigrescens, very cool to have them locally!
Keep them around 30 degrees celsius, wetten their substrate sand/coco once a week.
Very very cool scorpion! Exactly my taste.

Np dude, I'm pretty sure yes since they are from Mexico and the tail is not really Tityus stuff.


-males attain 10 cm of length
-females 8cm of length
-scorplings are black with orange highlights and appendages
-they do not need an overly humid environment
-males tailsegments are noticably stretched, and this is the way of sexing them
-gestation period is between 5-7 months with an average brood of 40
-they mature at instar 7, males at instar 6
-keeping scorplings together is not advised as these readily attack each other (this is theoretical and I have good experience keeping solitary species together)
-there is not much known bout their venom. It is assumed they are quite venomous.

ok mate, cheers for that, All info passed on.
I wish I lived in a different part of the world.lol
Might move to Southern Ireland. No DWA needed there, good sea fishing and still close enough to here that I could still moan about the weather.

Ye I think they are not far from Tityus... But to be honest, if they are as calm as tityus, then they are harmless. I mean, if you dont squeeze them with your finger they will not attack.
