I love all scorpions and I have several common scorpions like bark or black scorpion. I would love to get more different types of scorpions; I would love to get this tailless whipscorpion.

I found one at a pet store near where I live and being the arthropod arachnid collector that I am, I just had to get it. I find it interesting to watch as it moves down towards the cork bark during the day and up to the top screen at night. My Tailless Whip Scorpion molted once and at this point I believe it is an adult but I could be wrong. I also believe it is a male because its pedipalps (front spiny arms) are very long to where the "elbows" extend past the length of the first segment of the walking legs on each side unlike your picture in which the "elbows" look to be a bit shorter than the first segment of the walking legs.

I was told these creatures were incredibly shy and I would not see them feed. My tail less whip scorpion ate infront of me in a fully lit room. It never ceases to mesmerize me. An amazing pet!
