---2---
If you want a scorpion from a humid environment - go to step 3
If you want a scorpion from a dry environment - go to step 7

---3---
If you want a communal species - go to step 4
If you want a non-communal species - we suggest Pandinus cavimanus

---4---
If you want a big and tropical scorpion - go to step 5
If you want a small and temperate scorpion - go to step 6

---5---
If you want Pandinus imperator* - we suggest Pandinus imperator*
If you want anything else - we suggest most Heterometrus spp.*

---6---
If you want a bark scorpion - we suggest Centruroides hentzi
If you want a forest scorpion - we suggest Uroctonus mordax*

---7---
If you want a communal species - we suggest Centruroides vittatus
If you want a non-communal species - go to step 8

---8---
If you want a large species - we suggest Hadrurus arizonensis or Hadogenes spp.
If you want a small species - we suggest Vaejovis / Hoffimanus spp., Diplocentrus spp., Paruroctonus boreus, or Smeringurus spp.

---9--- (advanced)
If you want a scorpion from a humid environment - go to step 10
If you want a scorpion from a dry environment - go to step 11

---10--- (advanced, humid)
If you want a communal species - we suggest Babycurus jacksoni, Centruroides gracillis, or Tityus spp.
We do not currently have a suggestion for an advanced, humid, non-communal species.

---11--- (advanced, dry)
If you want a communal species - we suggest Centruroides sculpturatus or Hottentotta spp.
If you want a non-communal species - we suggest Leiurus quinquestriatus or Androctonus spp.


* Requires very high humidity -- all others in "humid" categories require more humidity than desert species, but not a very high amount

Note: most of the species here listed as "non-communal" have been kept communally by someone at some point with success -- however, they tend to be more prone to cannibalism in most peoples' experience and keeping them together is not recommended for the average hobbyist.

This list reflects only the more commonly available species and is here to help someone out who can't decide what to get.
