Hi,

I have 2 adult speciemens. Nothing special, dry environment, weekly spraying with water, around 25-27Celsius daytime 20-22Celsius night...doing well. They are originated from Peru..maybe It helps.;)
I tried to find infos also, but nothing.

Here is a pic of mine:

Good luck, I didn't have much success with them, but I will try again

Try a search here for one thread I had on them, and I'll give you the links for the ones I started on the Venomlist.

Here is the one from AB

The advice I got was different from bengerno, and based on what happened in the following VL threads I would trust it now.

Thanks to both of you for your info.

What substrate do you use. Is this a forest species?

Hi Imre,

the specimen on your picture seems to be a Bothriuridae sp, not C. keyserlingi.

What do you mean "zipping on his tail"? I don't understand.....
