    I'm curious if there are any types of scorpions that like an environment similar to an asian forest scorpion, but are the size of centruroides sculpturatus. Bonus points if they can live in a colony.

    They're smaller but very neat. Like mini tropical flat rock scorpions

    Uroctonus mordax, if you can get your hands on them. I have some, they can live communally if you feed them well.

    The colouration reminds me of Hottentotta Franzwerneri, the Algerian Yellow Leg. Very cool, wasn't aware of the species.

    I wanna echo all the scorpions mentioned in this thread. All of them are fairly easy to care for. I own magacascarensis, gervasii, and australisae myself

    Big trick with them is keeping them from dryin out.

    Got some good suggestions already. I want to add chaerilus sp. to the list.

    I know it's been a minute, but do you have any idea where I could buy some captive bred Uroctonus Mordax? They seem like a pretty good option for me, but I'm having trouble finding a seller. I can't even find anyone selling wild caught.
