K so I've kept tarantulas for a while now but here lately I've been really wanting to get a scorpion and I was just wondering which one ya'll might suggest for a beginner ? I don't really want an emperor as I had a few in the past, I'm gonna try to catch some wild ones today I used to catch them here when I was a kid so I know where to find them just dunno which sp. They are lol any suggestions are much appreciated

Just tryin to get the names of a few good beginner sp. So I can do my research before buying....

Get one of the Hadrurus species. They are fairly active and defensize. They are good feeders. I like them a lot.

Web - The scorps in the springfield area are U. mordax, also called the mordant forest scorpion.

Ry and Rob - there are some P. boreus in the gorge and eastern Washington. There are U. mordax on the coast of south western Washington.

Just check around, there are several.

Other species you could try: Hadogenes, Opistathalmus, most of the native species in the U.S. except Centruroides sculpturatus--it is more dangerous. Good luck.:)
