    What are some good beginner buthids? I'm looking into getting back into the scorpion hobby and have been interested in buthids. What are some species in the buthid family that are not considered medically significant?

    Centruroides Gracilis, C. Exilicauda, C. Hentzi, C. Vittatus, pretty much any of the bark scorpions besides Sculpturatus and some of the Central American varieties. For C. Gracilis the Florida/Cuban variety have painful stings but not health threatening, but the south/Central American variety are medically significant despite being the same species.

    I've been dying to find some jacksoni but so far zilch. They've been a favorite species of mine for ever lol. I want one in every color morph.

    My female is a huge mean DICK of a scorp and my Male is much more chill and laid back. But other than her trying to sting everything that moves around her, they were a species on my wish list many many years before they became cheap enough and able to acquire! Awesome scorps

    B gigas show up in the classifieds here from time to time but I haven't seen a jacksoni since I bought a adult female last year. She died a couple of months ago and I'd like to get some more myself.

    Not available though
     
  12. Uroplectes sp., Lychas sp. are small but really cool looking buthids. I don't know about the availability in America though. Here in Europe they are available captive bred but I feel like there are way less scorpion breeders in America.
