    So I have owned some Scorpions in my time, and for some reason I love the Red Claw. I know they are known to have more attiude then an Emporor Scorpions and are usually second started behind Asian Forest, but the simplity of them just makes them so appealing to me. Can anyone tell me what their favorite it and why? I am just curious if the easily cared ones are more popular then the more difficult ones.

    I couldn't possibly have a favorite as I have so many I think are the coolest thing ever.

    I couldn't pick just one species either. Scorpions are just amazing animals in general in my opinion.

    As someone who hasn't kept scorpions (yet ;)) I have to say that all scorpions are great because when they walk with their little claws up they remind me of the psycho-robot, Francis X. Clampazzo, from Futurama. Like they always want to clamp things.

    Centruroides and Tityus!!!
    Out of all the different ones I've owned i would say C.limbatus, C.griseus and T.bahiensis.
    But i cant wait to finally get some C.bicolor. love the way they look.

    Never owned a scorpion, but I really like Scorpio maurus, the Isreali gold scorpion, which I did see for sale at a local reptile convention! I also really love the look of Lychas marmoreus, the marbled scorpion, but they're an Australian species so I doubt I'll get one anytime soon.

    Leiurus quinquestriatus, I love this little thing. So full of anger and hostility. Watching it kill lateralis is better than any arachnid I own.

    I absolutely adore my Hadogenes troglodytes. Sure, she's not the most exciting scorpion on the planet - more of a pet rock, really - but that's what I love about her. She's big, she's beautiful, she's a reasonably active hunter - and I can pick her up for classroom demonstrations without having to worry (too much) about getting stung. My feistier scorpions are fun to watch - but strictly "hands off"!

  17. Buthus draa is my current favorite as I don't really have a large assortment of species (yet) haha. Mine are all 3i so they are small but they are fast and fiesty. Absolutely gorgeous too.

    L. marmoreus are super tiny. I have had a few, my first scorp was one named Ozymandius. I would love to attempt a communal tank of them though, to make up for lack of size. I often find them in the carpark at work.

    My favourite is P. imperator, I remember them from my childhood, living in Africa, and holy crap they are intimidating when you are less than 3ft tall.

    For species that I have kept, probably Rhopalurus junceus. For species I *haven't* kept, and probably never will, Apistobuthus pterygocercus :(

    C. vittatus
    will always have a place on my heart, too, probably because it's the first species I collected in the wild.
