    Hi guys, picked up my first scorpion last week, and of course it was under the vague "Asian Forest Scorpion" moniker. I know these threads are a dime a dozen, so sorry in advance. I'm thinking H. petersii, but would like a second opinion, since I'm new to this. I know he's male, but that's about it.

    Way to dry. Add some water to that substrate. Tropical specie needs high humidity

    Thanks! Already remedied it, but figured someone would call me out on it, haha. The top 1/16th of an inch of substrate was drying out super quick and everything under that was damp, so I covered most of the lid up. It's better now, I swear!
