Arizona Bark Scorpion - Centruroides Sculpturatus
Scientific Name: Centruroides sculpturatus
Common Name: Arizona Bark Scorpion
Origin: Southwest USA and Mexico
Size: Up to 4"
The Arizona Bark Scorpion is a small and quick scorpion. They can be found in the Southwest United States and Northwestern Mexico.
The Arizona Bark Scorpion can grow up to 4 inches tip to tail and live up to 6 years.
They thrive in captivity with the right care. The temperature should range from 76F-90F with the humidity levels at 60%. A heating pad or low wattage bulb should do the trick. We recommend a 5-gallon tank or bigger for any of the adult scorpions. Sand and a small amount of clay make a great substrate. It allows them to hide as they would naturally in the wild. Adding other hides to the enclosure will make them a bit more active and happy as well. They can be aggressive when scared and are also the most venomous scorpion in the USA. But due to their size and temperament, you can house them together. We recommend not having more than 4 in a 20-gallon at a time.
We do not recommend handling them due to there high venom level.
The Arizona Bark Scorpion is nocturnal. Which means they come out at night to hunt. They eat crickets and mealworms. If you have more than one scorpion in the enclosure keep the food to scorpion ratio at 2:1. For every one scorpion add two crickets or mealworms.
WARNING: HIGHLY VENOMOUS
