Where are they from?

Thanks all, H. paucidens is considered harmless, their venom is very weak. A sting from these would be like a bee sting if that. The size of their tail has nothing to do with their venom, they are from Africa. I have many hot species to but the non hot ones are just as cool. I will post some more pics of some of my other scorps soon :).

Are they hard to breedDepends on the species, this species here is not easy to breed because they are not communal at all and one would have to introduce a pair and watch then closely and hope they dont kill each other.

LOL well if you put 2 together it would be, but thats just this species, not all species are like that. Their are many communal species like Pandinus imperator(emperor scorpion), the most commonly kept species.

Nice scorp Jason. My buddy would be happy to see more people working with some of the less "popular" species. I used to keep scorps myself and I think it's time to get some more. Perhaps some V. spin...

are these guys easy to handle or are they more a look but don't touch? I've always thought about getting some scorp, but I have not done much research on them.

Thanks :), Haroldo, I have a few V. spingerus, very cool and underated species IMO. is your freind a member of forums?, if so whats his forum name?, I may know him, I am a member of most invert forums.

Dragonflames81: The venom of this species is very weak so a sting wouldnt be more then a be sting if that. Scorps are more display animals, handling causes stress and put their life in danger(in the case of a fall), they are best hands off. Just awesome animals to watch, they are natures perfect hunter and one of the toughest animals on the planet.

cool, thats kinda what I figured but I wasn't sure. they sure are neat to watch. at the cincinnati zoo we have a ton of emperor scorps and they are freaking huge, and I mean they are fat. I didn't know they could get over weight.
