Hey guys, its been a while since i posted here. Sorry Embarassed This summer i got the opportunity to go to the desert in Oregon in the Bend/Prineville region of central Oregon and got the opportunity to do some scorpion hunting and i caught some for myself and some freinds. Here are some pictures i took.

I believe these are Paruroctonus boreus. What do you guys think.

Wow sixty is alot man! I dont want to take any more out of the wild. I collected 14 or something and gave a couple to my freinds. i kept two of them. I have them living together and they seem to be doing pretty well. they are active both day and night and they readily feed. I heard that they will drink from the a water dish so i gave them one but i havent seen it. You know about how long they live for?

Yeah I only took 3 out of the wild. The rest were born in my care. They are very active scorpions, and always sting their dinner. Good find there!

ya i had an agro male and when i first caught them i fed them and the male stung like three crickets to death and didnt eat any of them. he just sat there with dead crickets all around him. I have a flat rock scorpion and these little guys are way more active. My flat rock doesnt do [hopscotch] man.

Yeah. It's almost as if they have "little man" complex since they are so tiny.

Where did you find yours at? Ive found a few other types of scorps in Eastern Oregon, but these are the first i was prepared to find and collect. What types do you have n your area?


Oh wait never mind man, i just saw the answer to this in your other Paruroctonus thread.

Yes, but they have been known to cannibalize. I think if you've got a large enough tank, plenty of hides, and keep them well fed you should be fine. I found a "colony' of them within the same ten square foot area, but each one had it's own scrape under a separate rock.

Ya i have a 5 and a half gallon tank but they are just bigger than a quarter so i have two rock caves on each corner of the enclosure and theyve never had a problem. They actually come out daily and mess with each other
