Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone has any advise on how to catch any Asbolus verrucosus to use as scorpion tank mates? I'm not sure where to look for them exactly.
I am in the Sonoran Desert near the Colorado River. So I am near the right habitat. I just need a little advice in how to locate them.
Thank you for any help,
Crotalusherper

From what I've heard, they can be sometimes found crawling on rocks and wood in the open daylight, but usually turning over some rocks and dead wood should produce some results. I would wear thick gloves or something just in case you find some other guests living there though.

Agreed with Jacob Ma, thick gloves and always make sure to pull rocks and things towards you when turning them over to you have a bit of a barrier in case you come across a rather unhappy snake.
