Tityus smithii care?

    Hoping to get an adult pair soon. What are the requirements for this species? Since this is Tityus I would assume semi-humid to humid? I have some extra cork bark and coco fiber so I have that covered. How large/long are they as adults? How communal are these? I had a few other rather simple questions but I just happened to have forgotten them so I will throw those in another post on this thread when I remember them. @gromgrom

    Dustin will definitely have more to say on this as he has been very successful with them, but they have been super easy for me to care for. Definitely humid and warm. I have heard that they do not do as well communally as other Tityus species.

    Fairly easy to care for. My only issue with this species, and it may be due to a weak bloodline, is the young sometimes dont take to food, or are especially picky, not feasting on wounded or dead prey.
     
  4. Oh ok then. If I do end up buying the pair and I get a brood I can send you a few of the scorplings so you can try and fix up your bloodline but that may take a few months lol.

    Another Tityus I NEED! There's only about 180 Tityus, so it's reasonable to want them all, right?
