Most of my tarantulas are arboreal or semi-arboreal. I'm thinking of setting up similar, albeit smaller, display cages for arboreal or semi-arboreal scorpions. The idea would be to have a display tank with a "colony" of arboreal communal scorpions. I know that centruroides species, tityus species and b. jacksoni are both arboreal/semi-arboreal and communal. Can anyone think of any other scorpions that are both arboreal/semi-arboreal and communal? Thanks.

My first thoughts were of course Centruroides sp. and Tityus sp. But I thought what the heck and googled Arboreal scorpions. The first link is below, with the only relevant info pasted.

Tree-dwelling (arboreal) scorpions such as Uroplectes vittatus and U.otjimbinguisis have been observed to have moved around at night about the branches of acacia trees, looking for food.




According to the 4th-ish link, Opisthacanthus sp. and Uroplectes sp. are arboreal.

And according to this link below, some Lychas are as well.

Well, I am sure there are more as well. But 10 minutes is enough for me right now. It's breakfast time! :}
