I have been really interested in branching out from collecting tarantulas and venturing into scorpions. I have been trying to research and research and the Heterometrus spp has really caught my attention. Heterometrus madraspatensis has caught my attention the most out of this genus. I haven't found a ton of info while trying to research. From what I understand Heterometrus spp require moist substrate, enough to burrow, a hide and a water dish, and basically the same temps that I keep my house (70-75F). Is the H. madraspatensis an obligate burrower? How is the temperament? What is an average size? How is the feeding response? have you kept others in this genus that you prefer more? I am very new to scorpions and want to make sure if I do it, then I do it right. Any advice is helpful.
