    looking for info on giant dessert hairy scorpion

    Yah. Like tons of cobwebs and stuff. Not long after commenting on bentonite I found stuff called "paver underlay" at Home Depot. It's used to put under paver stones and bricks for walkways. Real cheap and has some clay as well as rocks and sand and hold up to burrowing. Probably doing a...

    Help identifying scorpion

    Could be a Leiurus. Has long thin pedipalps/pincers and from what little can be seen the right color on the last tail segment. Regardless, it probably has significant venom. Note: all scorpions are venomous, but most are not dangerous. In Iran you are much more likely to encounter a dangerously...

    Hadrurus arizonensis -vs- Vaejovis spinigerus resurrected a dead seven year old thread. I don't think most posters in this thread are active members -including myself. However, both species can be found together in habitats in Arizona. John ];')

    Scorpion ID help?

    I agree with Michael. Opisthacanthus asper or slight chance of O.validus. See a very similar picture of one (O.validus) I photographed on my Honeymoon to South Africa and Namibia. John ];')

    What is the Rarest/Most Valuable Scorpion Species Available?

    I think it might be an individual want or rarity...Some of the species mentioned I could care less about (i.e. H. Swammerdami-just another Heterometrus IMO) ...However I would love to get and sucessfully breed a pair of Apistobuthus pterygocercus. I would love to get legal Hottentotta arenaceus...

    Opinions on using these containers for adult scorpions?

    Interesting option/find. Do the lids snap tight all the way around like Tupperware or only at the corners? I was just thinking that some species are very flat and can squeeze in some of the thinnest spaces. Would probably not want to use for a V.spinigerus that is about to pop...

    Centruroides of the United States

    The color variation in C. gracilis is wide and changes quickly. The coloration of the specemins in Florida vary greatly. You can even see different color patterns in the same location. John ];')

    Scorpion id please

    Vaejovis sp. Of some sort. Not familiar with what species is in your area. My are those two gravid! You might try raising the temps 5 degrees or so as it might induce them to give birth sooner than later. Be prepared for lots of scorplings. John ];')

    scorp ID

    In addition, H.arenaceus and very closely related H.conspersus have very thin chela compared to H.trilineatus...and most other Hottentotta come to think of it. See below. John ];')
