    I read that scorpion poop is supposed to be a dry white powder but my emps' droppings have more of a creamy texture, sort of like the inside of a marshmallow. Anyone else experience this?

    When it dries it will be powdery. Kinda like bird poop. Can't imagine it would be too comfortable passing chalk through your system...even for a scorpion. :D

    So scorpion poop comes out before the telson but after the 5th segment of the tail? Just needed to clarify that.

    I just received a scorpion from my boyfriend. He found it in a shipment of roofing tiles from Columbia or Mexico (where all their company's roofing tiles come from). I am not sure what kind of Scorpion this is so if you guys know from the picture, input would be greatly appreciated as to what kind I now have as a new pet. More importantly, he has white substance on his front two claws and a couple wait spots around his back. I attached a picture so that you can see what I'm talking about. I read a lot of other post about possible fungus and to try to wipe it off with a wet Q-tip. I tried this and nothing came off, it seems to be firm and hardened on there. Any advice on what this is or what I should do?
    Thanks so much!

    Im about 90% sure That would be CENTRUROIDES GRACILIS the Florida bark scorpion. A simple enclosure set up would be an inch of cocofiber substrate. Vertical bark for it to climb on and 1 leaning bark for it to hide . Keep it moist and humid but not too wet

    That would be poop all over it. These a notorious for it because of there long tails curled up against them

    If it's from Mexico or Colombia I'm finding it confusing.

    Maybe another centruroides?

    Definitely Centruroides but it would be nearly impossible to narrow it down without a definitive location. Could be from the C. gracilis complex but that also gets tricky.

    Also of note, appears to be an adult male.
