What I found is that they're very fiesty and hungry little things. My entire first brood died off
The next three broods seem to be doing better.
My females all seem to prefer to hide under bark, rather than hang on it interestingly enough
I don't know how lethal UV is to scorpions but you need to understand, OP, that scorpions are nocturnal predators and are prey to other animals, so being out in the open and being able to be "seen" is not what they want to do be doing. They don't make good pets for that reason.
I wanna echo all the scorpions mentioned in this thread. All of them are fairly easy to care for. I own magacascarensis, gervasii, and australisae myself
Big trick with them is keeping them from dryin out.
Very cool! Try raising the heat/moisture to help them molt.
I tend to get smaller broods/more stressed out mothers when they give birth in captivity. Usually I separate gravid looking females a few weeks before I think they will give birth. But sometimes you miss some smaller mothers who give...
I wouldnt worry about making the AFS "Angry" or anything, unless its already incredibly stressed. Give it some stimulation ;)
In any case, when mine do this, i give them a short spritz to the mouthparts so they'll drink. always good to be sure they're doing that.
Hope I didnt come into this thread too late
I'm gonna echo others with Hadogenes sp. They're slow growing, easy to care for, and very docile specimen. I have some i got as 2nd instars in 2011 that are only 4" long now and still subadults!
