Saw something on TV today that mentioned drumheller had scorpions. I have lived in Alberta most of my life and I have never in all my trips to the bad lands seen or heard of them. The in-laws had a cabin in East Coulie.
I did a basic search on google and couldint find any good info. Has anyone ever kept them in a tank? Or does anyone have any more habitat info on them, and feeding habits. Or even where to look for them.

They're P. boreus, although I'm pretty certain they live much more southwest than Drumheller. I've never kept them, but I've read that room temp is fine. If you find any, please let me know! I've always wanted to keep our native species. For habitat, they're terrestrial. Just mimic a desert.

This summer will be camping with the kids in Drumheller. Will see if we can find these.

paruroctonus boreus are a very rewarding scorpions to keep and great eaters thou they seem to prefer a more varied diet then most other scorpions.
