Pandinus cavimnus, setup is the same as most pandinus scorps, fairly aggresive, very handsome.

Good luck, if you can find one, buy it. (Don't think I would keep 2 together though, just in case).

The usual name "red claw" are P.cavimanus but some time P.viatoris.

They care like P.Imperator.;)

My P. cavimanus happens to be pretty active. He mosies about around sunset. When a feed him, he runs full speed towards those crickets {D This species was my first to ever own and I love them.

...because they don't like to be misted directly on their bodies. They're also wild animals and tend to explore their surroundings.

They climb up the walls because a scorpion doesn't have the concept of a 'tank'. As far as it's concerned, it's environment extends on and on. It doesn't understand there's a piece of glass that prevents it from going very far when it tries to explore.

I look at it this way. If the scorpion spends all it's time in it's burrow, it's probably trying to find the right temp/humidity. If they wander around alot, it means the area outside it's burrow is comfortable for it.

I have 2 specimens, P. cavimanus in separate containers. They spend most of their time in the burrow. I'm lucky if I get to see them more than once a month.
