I've been waiting for this. A couple of my little females are mommas.
Well they can really get their hooks in ya, I mean scorps in general, even the small scorps can entangle their claws on a finger due to teeth or grab hold an armhair with shocking resistance and strength. But this species has petite claws and can't exert much pressure though their sting can provide plenty of aggravation and mild-moderate pain.When keeping C. vittatus specimens, not that I would be handling them, is there pinch anything to worry about?
Centruroides vitattushi there, sorry to revive an oldish thread... I was curious as to what the C. in C.Vittatus stood for. Im trying to look in the gallery for more pictures. Im thinking of getting two of these after im with my P.Imperator for a while. Any thoughts?
Ain't they! Probably my favorite native species despite several really cool uncommon scorps in the Western states.Hi Skyswifting. The C. stands for Centruroides vittatus. They are a fun species to keep. Good luck.
