Hey!
I am on a lookout for a desertscorpion to a terrarium that is 45x45x45 cm big. it would be cool with qa communal spiecies.
So do you guys know about any spiecies? Smile

I have two Mesobuthus Martensii's right now, so i have a bit of experience Smile
and if you can add a care sheet, i would aprieciate (?) that very much Razz

With all that height I think it would be cool to get a massive Babycurus jacksoni colony going. Plus they are very pretty to look at.

how would you build it up for that scorpion? Smile
and does it build it's own caves and so on?
how many scorpions can i have, and how many males and females?

and is it possible to make a awesome tarrarium that are nice to look at with this scorpion?

Hi mate,

You'll get better responses with a self-intro done and it'll be more appropriate for others to suggest species for you when the basic info of your location has been made known.
No point suggesting something that'll be hard for you to get your hands on Smile

While not a desert species, the Babycurus jacksonis that Yames suggested are really cool communal scorps. I also love the Centruroides vittatus scorps. They are very hardy and can tolerate a wide range in temperatures and humitity. They are also very communal and love to climb. I like also that they don't burrow so I can use a reptile heater under one side of their tank. I keep a fairly cool house and they love to sit under a piece of bark on the warm side.

If you can find the C. vits, I would think this would be a good species for you in a communal setting if you don't heat your home to a warm temp and just keep a warm side in the enclosure.

thank you! Smile
sounds like a cool scorp, but i've also looked at the Parabuthus transvaalicus, how is this scorp?

my room is relatively hot since i have scorps that need 30 C at day and i breed melaworms so it's hot Smile

Another option for communal scorpions is Hottentotta hottentotta. Beautiful scorpions and are parthenogenetic.
There are some nice links in this thread: http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/t5495-asa-hottentotta-hottentotta

Parabuthus transvaalicus are not communal imo.

About 8-10 specimen. I dont actually know the rules on how many scorpions can go in a certain sized enclosure but my H.saulcyi are seperated only when a fight breaks out and that has never happened. As long as there are enough hides and food, everything should be OK.
