The best way to house these are in species specific arachnovariums. Making a ten gallon fishtank into an eclosure for scorpions could lead to not only a waste of time but with simply made errors in construction, the lost of a scorpion that could cause severe issues with children that get stung by an escapee. Don't risk it. Purchasing an arachnovarium for this wonderful communial scorpion will offer much enjoyment as well as peace of mind.

We've found in our projects that C.v. enjoy both climbing structions like felled and standing pine trees as well as debris on the floor. We do mist ours every other night. Other then the substrate that we designed for these, most items of decor can be found in your back yard or park. Oak leaves, dried pine bark, dead hollow logs and securely fitting stones (vivarium mortar bonds to anything). These striped scorpions, Centroides vitattus, make great captives.

i picked up a tiny 4 month old rose hair the other day, and she is beautiful! she is very quick moving, and she loves to jump around her tank, something i thought was quite weird for a rose hair lol. i haven't held her yet as she is still too small, but i hope to do so soon. rose hairs are an ideal beginners spider, and a hardy species that i would recommend to anyone.

I once was owned by the most beautiful green iguana. It's been about 6yrs. since she passed, and it seems every day that goes by I miss her even more...I had Baby for over 5yrs. she grew to an amazing 6ft from nose to tail...I've been thinking of getting another, but I'm afraid I'll forget about Baby...Thanks...

We found our RGS sunning on a road in the path of a school bus. It was nervous on the first day, ate 4 crickets on the active second day, and made a nest and coiled up quietly by the third night. So far, so good. Thanks for the info...

I have had a Whites Tree Frog for only a lil bit now but he/she is amazing. It is the most fun watching him eat. Good luck to anyone who is going to get one. They are such a beautiful and fascinating frog.

i just got a rose tarantula 4 days ago and she is quite good to handle. so i recommend people who are looking for a pet, to get a rose tarantula.
