ok, I just now associated the common name with the latin name.....E. Anne gave me 15 of those to pass on to Mike "Troll". they were all in a small deli dish with a moist paper towel so I decided to divide them up into three different larger enclosures I had laying around. good thing I looked in Manny Rubio's scorpion book and found out they are considered HOT before grabbing them by the metasoma with my hands!Originally posted by Kugellager
I'm nearly 100% sure what you have is C.exilicauda which is the Arizona bark scorpion. They are the most dangerous scorpions in the US but have not caused any deaths since 1968. Either way you don't want to get stung by one. They are an interesting and relatively easy scorpion to keep. They also have that amazing yellow color to them and are a nice show scorpion since they don't burrow. They do like to hide and you can keep them communally. Give them plenty of hides and you can get them to breed well. A 5 gallon tank is ok but a 10 gallon tank would be better for the number you have.
Enjoy and be careful,
