I've heard they're great in captivity, but I've also heard that they don't live long.

yeah i know just thought id see if any 1 knew how they did in captivity cuz if just found one for sale which is amazing in the uk cuz u only really ever see emperors hairy deserts and occasionally an asian forest scorp but thats usually crap pet shops selling them as emps. i think its hard to get most exotics over here in comparison to america, dunno why thou although sating that there are some amazing pet shops that do stock alot of amazing creatures, my favourite i have seen in a pet shop so far was a rhino iguana called spot.

Im in "hampshire"
There is one shop that is meant to be "the best" but I reported them for animal cruelty and also they never have any scorpions in! at most was a pandinus cavimanus and that was housed on sand *faints*
Cruel cruel man! naughty naughty man! I bet the poor thing died!

i would be surprised we have one in leeds called living world it has been nicknamed living dead world guess why, lol they have been closed down 4 times now for mistreating animals along with cruelty and basically not knowing what there doing, i rescued a hairy desert scorp from there, they had it in a set up that was more suited to an emp, it died about a week after i rescued it, ne way they keep opening up all they have to do is reaply for the licence in someone elses name eg (an employees) thats what they kep doing ne way
