I am looking for species of scorpion you can keep in a colony. I know that there are a few species but not 100% for sure.

Thanks, Fred

A lot of species are communal. Would be easier to ask if it would be safe to keep this scorpion species together or not. I'm way too lazy to type all the communal scorpions.

Most of the Centruoides can be kept together. I've kept C. gracilis, C. vittatus, C. hentzi, C. margaritatus together with no problem. I've also heard that most of the Vaejovis can be kept together, but I've only kept V. carolinianus together. Most of these will breed together too and the babies will be eaten if not separated after the first instar.

You forget to add that this is only as adults. All of those species will munch on eachother as juvies and sub-adults faster than you can say Centruroides.

C. vittatus seem to like each others company. I've seen them piled on top of each other even with plenty of room to spread out.
