The Arizona Bark Scorpion (Centruroides sculpturatus) is the most venomous scorpion species in the USA. All stings from this species should get medical attention as it possesses a highly toxic venom that should not be underestimated. They are also very fast and quick to escape. It is very important that this species is not kept in households as a sting from it could be lethal. It should therefore only be kept by expert keepers in a controlled and safe environment and in an isolated room apart from the house. They are relatively easy to feed. babies can be raised on pin-head crickets with the size of prey increasing in correlation to the size of the scorpion. They do well in semi arid habitats and should be misted every 2-3 days. This species is not for beginners and should only be kept by experienced keepers. This is not a pet.
