Heterometrus Spinifer and other Sp. of Heterometrus

Pros: This is a great species if you want a good beginner that is a little more aggressive and some can be more Active. They are great to make communal as long as you feed them all properly so they dont feed on one another. I have 3 Spinifers that are 2nd instar i obtained from a breeder, they take 1-2 years to mature into Adults in which i will try to start a Colony ( there isnt a problem inbreeding scorpions as far as disfigurments, etc.) I prefer this species and will only be obtaining Spinifers over a P. imperator.

Cons: Males can be more aggressive, some will hiss. But like most scorpions they are animals you look but dont touch and dont bother them, they are more happier that way and will live ALOT longer if you leave them alone. If you want a animal you can touch and see it woudl be best to get something like a Non-burrowing Tarantula or Try looking up other beginner Scorpions.
