hi, im getting another scorpion soon for my birthday, however i am in difficulty over my choice. I was wondering if anyone could tell me which scorpion would fit into my criteria.
I would like:
A good eater.
A scorp that can be handled(not essential)
Active
One that could be left alone for a week at the most without negative effects.

Scorpions i am able to buy are:
Heterometrus sp
Pandinus sp(pandinus/cavimanus)
Hadrurus sp(spadix/arizonensis)
Long clawed scorpion(dont know the latin name)(would like info on this scorp)
Scorpio maurus
Tri color burrowing scorpion
Note:Humidity is already around 65% in room

haha, try handling scorpio maurus, they are nuts...I'd go with Hadrurus arizonensis, Spadix is nice but sometimes a little more aggressive...

No way. P. cavimanus all the way! I adore mine. He's always out and about and tolerates handeling very well.
