I've been looking into the care of E. flavicaudis for a few months with the idea to getting maybe one or two. However, they seem a little difficult to get hold of.

So, I was wondering what other, similar scorpions are available? I'm pretty new to the world of scorpions so would appreciate some feedback on what I should be looking at.

Thanks in advance - Lee.

Hi

I have a couple of Euscorpius spp in my collection like flavicaudis, italicus, hadzii and carpaticus
It all comes to what do you expect from your scorpion?
The fact is that Euscorpius spp. are not very interesting to keep.
- they usually just keep to their burrows
- dont attack prey in the open
- dont dig and you can hardly see them during the day
- not agressive and rarely attack prey that is bigger or the same size as them
- small in size

on the positive side they
+ have very weak poison, even milder than a bee sting
+ easy to keep
+ can last long time without food
+ can endure very low temperatures


While most of the desert spp are very active, agressive and interesting to watch, burrowing, agressive bigger in size but usualy more venomous.

Hope this helps.

Oooo I disagree Very Happy

Euscorpius spp. are great to keep. I guess it's just a matter of personal opinion though.

http://www.bugzuk.com/scorpions.php?page=3 has some E. flavicaudis in stock.

The closest species to E. flavicaudis in terms of care/size/looks is E. italicus.
