Interspecies keeping?

    Are any centruroides spp. able to stay in a cage with other centruroides spp.?
    Example: C. sculpturatus and C. gracilis, C. sculp. and C. infamatus, etc.

    If not, what about O. dentatus and B. jacksoni/gigas?

    I really would like to know. Thanks for any advice.

    You'd have to be very careful. C gracilis is so much bigger than C sculpturatus. You might end up losing the sculpt. If you are thinking about using O. dentatus, send them my way. They are kind of rare in the US and I allready have a few. I could use more for breeding purposes. I'd hook you up with some nice stuff. If I were going to do this I'd use species from the same geogrphic area that are from different genus, try to avoid hybirds(C sculpt.x C vitts would look a lot like some of the Centruroides morphs) Maybe C sculpt and some smaller Vaejovis. Avoid major size differences. In my example a added Hadrurus would eat everything else.

    I've kept various Centruroides species together.

    Never any problems.

    Just make sure they have similar care requirements.
