    anyone ever kept or seen any Smeringurus vachoni? I've always wanted/needed one but apparently they are kinda rare, a little info on them on the golden phoenix exotica site says they have some for breeding stock, but they dont have any for sale yet...if anyone has any info on these, I know they are pretty similar to S. mesaensis, but if anyones got any or knows where I can get some let me know...

    They occur in arizona, Smeringurus vachoni are lithophiles and you'll find them on cliffs and rocky volcanic hillsides strewn with talus.

    Look for them on vertical surfaces.

    Pinchers and Pokies would be the best source to purchase some from. Good luck! Only wild Scorps I found in abundance have been v. Spin....

    I can find tons of vachoni in the right spot, the key is talus slopes, this is something they need.
