I have found a place offering a breeding pair of these scorps. They are extremely expensive so before I go out and spend my hard earned cash can anyone give me some info on what conditions they like etc. I can't seem to find much info on this species.

Many thanks

Many thanks.
I did try the scorpion files first but I must have over looked it.
Unfortunatly my question is no longer of relevance as I didn't realise that zabius was a buthid. No buthids can be kept in the UK without a dangerous animals license. Why it applies to all and not just the dangerous ones I don't know. Shame, as it was one of the most beautiful scorpions I had ever seen, small but well sculpted!

Because it makes it really easy to enforce. No subjective rulings on the nature of "dangerous" are needed, nor are lengthy and well thought out bits of legislation. Sort of like using a sledgehammer to drive in a finishing nail. You don't need great aim, but your final project is going to be a little sketchy.

Cheers,
Dave
