Baja Bark Scorpion?

I'm visiting a friend outside of ensenada and this little friend wandered up while I was collecting some darkling beetles. It's maybe 2 in long and stays above ground even though I provided shelter in its enclosure. I'd love to keep it happy and take back as a pet. Any tips?
Just give it damp soil and probably a few lengths of the bark that is most common around where it was collected. I'd reccomend against handling as that thing looks PAINFUL. Awesome find though, scorpions must be some of the coolest shaped creatures on the planet
 
@RezonantVoid yeah, no handling. Like ever. I respect them like a would a living cactus. I caught a camel spider right after, but it promptly escaped. I think this lil friend is here to stay tho :)
 
Looks like it could be C. exilicauda, if that's what you mean by "Baja Bark Scorpion".
Vey cool find! The juveniles are bright orange.

Thanks for sharing,
