The other isnt a sting. Its often called a subaculear "tooth". I am not sure of the function. Maybe someone else here can enlighten us on this

Some shots of my Tityus.




P.S. I don't have DWA. I don't need it.

what is "DWA" ??????
I think it's a special license in the UK that you need in order to keep venomous animals. I don't know if that's 100% accurate but, that my hypothesis.

Back on topic Nice Tityus spp. pictures.

It's a premission to own and keep buthidae scorpions (may be some other animals as well) but aplied only in UK as far as I know.

it depends on your local council but up to and over £400 is not uncommon
and if you do get one and you keep lethal inverts the life insurance is MASSIVE, vittatus arent lethal are they? thats why i dont understand why theyre on the list

I think only C. Exilicauda has some fatalities in the past, others - quite uncomon in hobby or just painful.
Ok, no more about DWA and Centruroides, it's Tityus thread. My appologies, back to the topic. :rolleyes:

In order to get back on the subject of Tityus, here is a typical set up I use for both adults and subadults. It is a Gladware plastic box with moist peat, tree bark and a soda bottle cap for water.
