The Desert Hairy Scorpion (Hadrurus arizonensis) is the largest scorpion in North America and does not have a very potent venom, making it suitable to be kept by beginner to intermediate keepers. They do very well using both gravel and sand as a substrate. Feeding them is very easy and they do well on a diet or crickets and but can be feed roaches and pinky mice. Although this scorpion is big, its venom is not very potent, and its sting is commonly perceived to be about as painful as a honeybee's sting.I would recommend this species for beginners to advanced keepers. I find this species to be very rewarding to keep and a great display animal.
