Scientific name: Centruroides infamatus
The Koch Scorpion is native to the southern Mexican states and north to Zacatecas and Durango. Centruroides infamatusis often found under rocks, boards, and in detritus.
Appearance / health:
The Koch Scorpion is yellow to tan with two broad, dark longitudinal stripes on the upper side of the abdomen.
The Koch Scorpion eats other arthropods. Included in its diet are spiders, solfugids, other scorpions, and an array of insect prey.
"The Koch Scorpion (Centruroides infamatus) is a medium sized scorpion from the Centruroides genus. They are relatively venomous and should not be kept by beginner keepers. They do well in captivity if all their dietary and environmental requirements are met. Feeding them is relatively easy and can be done safely with the use of long tweezers. I found these to be an interesting species to keep but I would not recommend them for everyone.."
