I think you have an H. laoticus pictured not an H. spinifer. I have both and successfully reproduced from both species. I handle these on a daily basis and had been pinched only once, when i stupidly picked up this laoticus a little too quickly. They DO NOT readily sting but will try to scare you off by doing a quick pinch. If you want to see some action, give them something large for them thats frisky, a locust, large roach or even a small mouse. =)

I have 23 of these in a 75 gallon terrarium. They are so amazing, especially under a black light.

My Malaysian Forest Scorpion is 8 1/2 inches in length and is VERY AGGRESSIVE! if you move her cave while she is beside it, she pinches it and her tail sometimes strikes it. Same goes with anything that moves near her! Very cool pet and very hardy. Have had her for 4 years, and she has gone through 3 molts in my possesion.

Real cool pets: they are classified under Family Scorpionidae, genus Heterometrus, Species spiniferis.
