Rusty Tailed Scorpion - Babycurus jacksoni

By

3610, South Africa

Posted Dec 31, 2015

Rusty Tailed Scorpion or Babycurus jacksoni is a medium sized scorpion that reaches about 6-9cm long. They occur in East- to Middle-Africa and have been found in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are relatively easy to feed and can live happily on a diet of medium to large crickets. This species comes from temperate to tropical rainforest and need to be watered every two to three days. Caging must consist of a soil or peat medium as the substrate, a few pieces of bark to hide under and a shallow water tray to drink from. This species has a very potent venom and it should not be kept by beginners. This species is only suitable for highly experienced keepers and zoo exhibits.
