Hello, i have a question would this be a good idea as first dangerous scorpion? I mean i have P.Imperator and C.Margaritatus b.m. but i want something more dangerous, so would P.Transvaalicus be a good idea?

Depends what you mean by good idea? Is it a cool scorpion? Yes love them. Are you asking if your ready for one? Well thatís totally up to you. Itís one on my wishlist so my advice is go for it. Make sure itís kept secure and avoid handling it and keep your eyes protected this species is known to ďspitĒ

+1 to Abyss
If you feel you have gained enough experience then go for it. Parabuthus are awesome to keep, very active at night and if kept nice and hot they will never refuse a meal.

probably my fave in terms of feeding prowess, they gluttonously attack prey items without hesitation til they become very fat Very Happy

Alright, thanks for answers
One more question:
Can male and female be kept together or do they need separate enclosures? Because i couldn't really find any info whether i can keep a pair together or not.

well so far i think they would fare better in separate enclosures but i read a lot about successful pairings too so you know, do it at your own risk.

good luck with your 1st p.transvaalicus!

I have had very few success stories with keeping Parabuthus together. My females seem to like the taste of males because the males always gets chowed. I have kept a few males together over the years without incident.
I have never witnessed the "spitting" or "squirting" of venom from any of my P.schlechteri and a very good source has told me its more of a flicking action. They seem to gather a small amount of venom at the tip of the aculeus and then flick the venom in the direction of the aggressor.

P. transvaalicus seems to be able to "spray" venom, as this video illustrates. (I don't condone handling them though):

Edit: Sorry, seems I'm too "new" to post a link...

I would consider it to be more of a "squirt" than a spray though, sort of like a weak water gun.

Heres the video I think vespers was talking about.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYBODY TRYING THIS

IT STRESSES THEM OUT AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF GETTING STUNG
