hey guys
just ordered one of these
will be here on the 27th, along with 8 tarantulas Very Happy
general care please, i know what they need, just any help regarding temperature and humidity would be appreciated, i have a large flat faunarium set up for her, along with a bowl of water and lots of bark.

i've heard room temperature (uk room temp lol) and no extra humidity is fine, but being from chile.. a rather hot country, i am doubtful

thanks

Edit! i know this is a c.keyserlingi caresheet but i beleive you treat bothrurius the same...our b.burmeisteri was kept in these conditipns Smile they are all from chili so??

Common Name: Red Pigmy Scorpion.
Range: Chilean scorpion, Huasco, Chile.
Type: Terrestrial burrowers.
Communal: No.
Temperament: Docile and nervous.
Toxicity / Venom: Low.
Growth: Medium speed.
Adult scorpion size: 3-4cm
Housing Requirements: As this is a small species they can be kept in quite small tanks, a tank 6x5 inches will be fine.
Substrate: 30/70 sand/coco fibre mix.
Decor: Slate, rocks, cork bark, water bowl.
Temperature Range: 16-22 C
Humidity Range: 60-65%.
Breeding Difficulty: Medium.
Diet: A scorpions diet should consist mainly of live food insects such as crickets, locusts, butter worms, mealworms, super worms, and cockroaches.





Additional information: As with most arachnids, it is important to keep your scorpion away from direct UV light. This species is especially sensitive to UV light, and such exposure will cause stress and ultimately death. Infrared heat bulbs are safe to use.

no bex, you say use a heat lamp, and the pics are cast in red so i thought they were being heated
same as why i don't heat my Grammostola rosea Very Happy

i was looking, even though chile is warm lol, inverts tend to live mainly in burrows no warmer than a cold uk day lol

and it's in the southern hemisphere so the seasons are opposite

Those are pretty much the temps I have in my backyard. California and Chile are the same distance from the
Equator. They have Christmas in summer, which I think is a splendid idea. I hear their toilets flush backwards,
and I'm not sure what side of the road they drive on. Very Happy
