I have owned 2 of these. The one I have currently is a 2 inch female (not including the tail). She has pinched me once. It was a hard pinch. I have held her numerous times and she has not yet made an effort to sting me. She is skittish at first but soon settles down.
If you have an chance to get one GET IT. In my own personal opinion if you want something more "unpredictable" than an emperor scorpion this is it. I am not going to lie to you, they can and will sting if mishandled. But from what I heard from a friend of mine, it is more discomfort that actual pain!

These exotic pets are best pets for display not for "hands-on". my malaysian forest scorpions are 2 1/2 inches (not including the tail) 11 months old and it molts 3 times already.. they are better than the emperor because they move very often and you can see it's perfect scorpion appearance.. remember: handle it with care.

I have a Malaysian Forest Scorpion and I want to use a heat lamp instead of a heat rock or mat... My question is what wattage do you use? I also read that you can't use anything that emits UV or backlights on scorpions but someone mentioned using a red infrared heat bulb... Help!!!!

    Pet stores carry red bulbs,  usually in the reptile section. Bulb size will depend on how big your terrarium is, as well as the temperature of the room. You will want to get a thermometer to see how hot it's getting after you add a bulb, then either adjust the temperature by getting a lower or hight wattage bulb, or possibly using a timer so you can limit the amount of time the bulb is on/off.

    They need a temperature between 75° - 90 °F  with 75-80% humidity.

    You can try adding a aquarium heater to a jar of water.  This can give constant humidity.

    hey thx for the advise...i shall try to get that :)

    Alternatively, you can get a cheap usb air humidifier placed in the tank. They kind of make vapours which cools the surrounding air naturally. It also simulates the morning dew found in the early mornings of the rainforest. So you only need to run the humidifier once a day. One small humidifier holds water to last about an hour, which is just nice enough to moisten the air throughout the day.

    Nice pets! but it does sound like you need to come up with some sort of cover to contain the humidity. Maybe a piece of glass or acrylic laid on top would work.

How many times does a giant blue scorpion molt in a month? And how many months does it take to grow?

    It is quite different with all scorpions. Younger ones molt monthly, while older specimens molt very rarely. You can tell if they are due, the exoskeleton looks like it will burst and they won't eat.

    They can breed for a couple of months before they actually lay eggs.  They can also just lay eggs.
