Species:

The Emperor Scorpion belongs to the Scorpionidae family.

Origin:

These scorpions are native to Tanzania.

Size and Longevity:

Emperor Scorpions range from 3.5 inches to 5 inches long, and their average life is 5 to 7 years.

General Description:

Scorpions do well in captivity but are generally aggressive toward humans. Like most scorpions, Emperor Scorpions are nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and come out at night to eat.

Habitat and Cage:

Scorpions do not need much room because of their relatively small size. Emperor Scorpion gets along with other scorpions and can be housed together, but it is not recommended to have any more than 3 scorpions in one enclosure. A 2.5 to 20 gallon tank is sufficient housing depending on the amount of scorpions.

Substrate consisting of sand and/or soil is recommended along with a few inches of moist peat moss for humidity control. The terrarium should be set up so that the temperature is between 75°F and 90°F with a humidity of 60 to 70%. Using a low wattage bulb will help maintain the temperature and humidity of the enclosure as well. There should be enough hiding places so that there is at least one for each scorpion in the enclosure (more than one hiding place is recommended). Not providing adequate hiding areas can lead to stress and fights which can cause health problems and a shorter life span.

A wide and shallow water dish is the optimal way to ensure the scorpion can get to the water it needs and has enough to survive. The water should be changed daily to keep it fresh and free of dirt and other toxic things that may build up over time.

Feeding and Handling :

Young scorpions feed off of pinhead(baby) crickets while adults feed off of adult crickets. Adult scorpions eat 2 to 3 crickets per week. Scorpions will not eat dead insects, so any dead crickets in the enclosure should be discarded.

Handling a scorpion is not recommended without the proper equipment such as foam-covered tweezers, a cup, or some other means of picking it up without being stung. All scorpions are venomous, but is only deadly if the recipient is allergic to the venom. The sting is most often said to be just a little more painful than a bee sting.
