Just after some more help please Smile

Looking to get a Desert Scorp of some sort. Ive been looking around and can get hold of the below.

Whats the ideal size enclosure for these 3 and which one would you recommend to more of a noob like me?

Hadrurus a. pallidus
Hadrurus a. spadix
Hadrurus arizonensis

I've got a Hadrurus Arizonensis and I must say desert scorps are WAY more fun then forest scorps. They are more active, hunt and use their stinger on prey. Keeping the tank tidy and free of bad odors and waste is easier.

If all three of those are available to you just go online and look for pictures of them to see the differences. Since they are all in the same family it's just appearance at this point in your decision making. So to chime in I like the look of the A. Spadix that dark to light contrast looks awesome. I only had the one type available to me here. And I wouldn't trade pinchy for the world. That's him in my avatar enjoying a two handed cricket burger.

The only significant difference between the three is coloration. Otherwise, they all have the same husbandry requirements. I keep my H. arizonensis in a 12"x12"x12" Exo-terra mini enclosure. This is the smallest sized enclosure I would recommend for a full grown adult. For my next Hadrurus enclosure, I'll probably use a 10 gallon aquarium or, if I can find one, a tank with the volume of around 10 gallons but taller.

If going just on the look I prefer the look of the Hadrurus a. spadix (Black Back are they called?)

Thanks for your help. Ill work on getting a decent sized set up for one ready and so I can then get the scop in a month or so

They're great scorps which ever colour variant you go for.

I have H. a. pallidus, came from the spider shop in great condition. Probably where your looking but they have all three at the moment which is quite rare.

Just going to clarify something here.... Wink

The species are:

Hadrurus arizonensis

Hadrurus arizonensis pallidus

Hadrurus spadix

So,
Quote :
Hadrurus a. spadix


H. spadix is a separate species, not a subspecies.

Just wanted to clarify that. Smile

I recently became the proud owner of a Hadrurus arizonensis and they are absolutely awesome scorpions. I only have one and I keep him in a 5 gallon tank and it works great he loves it. I would definitely recommend this scorpion. I also agree that desert species are a lot of fun!
