    Question

    Anybody keeping Scorpions or Tarantulas? I love these guys.
    Terrariums are great, I've kept many spiders in it also, oh and a baby possum too!

    I have 2 wild caught scorpions from Santa Cruz, CA. Im still not sure about the species though. I keep them in a set up like this:

    5 gallon tank
    soil mixed with orchid bark as bedding
    a few rocks for hiding

    They are tiny (about 2 icnhes long each) so the tank is small. They dont seem to fight, so i keep them together.

    They eat medium sized crickets

    I caught the tarantula on the other side of monterey bay, not the santa cruz side.

    P.S. where in Santa Cruz did you get the scorpions? I would like to see them in the wild. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Thanks

    Zach,
    It could possibly be Uroctonus mordax. Not too many other scorpions up there in that area.

    I've got a couple of adult Chilean Rose-hair Tarantulas and a smaller (hehe) Brazilian Salmon Birdeater - it's only about three inches in diameter now, but will get to be the size of a dinner plate. I can't wait!
