Pandinus Emperator: A perfect organism. Its structural perfection is only surpassed by its hostility. I own an Emperor Scorpion, named him Maximus. I admire its purty, its sense of survival, unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

I have found that for a single scorpion or pregnant or hatched female, a plastic ice cream bucket works fine until the mothers young start to wander. then a ten gallon tank is nessasary to keep the young alive.

I got two emperors and knew one was a male the other was a female. When I put them together they started what it looked like was fighting. Then one ran off. The next day I was looking up how to breed tem and it turned out that they were not fighting they were BREEDING!

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 bought an emperor scorpion about 4 months ago and just recently it has had a baby. the scorpion has not had any contact with any other scorpions. Either the scorpion was already pregnant or maybe it sexually reproduced. Either way it is pretty cool.

IF YOU ARE A PARENT GIVE THE SCORPION A CHANCE. IT CAN BE A GREAT PET FOR AN OLDER CHILD, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE LIMITED ON SPACE.

these are very docile creatures. they look like dangerous animals but are extremely easy to handle with care.
