Giant Blond Desert Hairy Scorpion (Hadrurus pallidus)
WC 3" - 4", $35 each, RARE!
Beautiful large scorpion from the southwestern U.S., H. pallidus is lighter in coloration and quite a bit larger that similar Hadrurus species such as H. arizonensis or H. spadix. Sparsely available, don't pass these up!!

Arizona Desert Hairy Scorpion (Hadrurus arizonensis)
WC 3" - 4", $25 each
Great scorpion all around! Large, and menacing looking, but actually a very mild sting, although it does hurt a little. Very hardy and easy to keep. Among one of the best "pet" species in the hobby, although a little attitude. Good looker!

Scorpions


Rusty Thick Tail Scorpion (Babycurus jacksoni)
CB Babies, 1/2" $20 each
This beautiful species from Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon, Uganda, and Congo (Zaire), lives in scrubland type savannas and makes its home under rocks and other debris. B. jacksoni need a bit more moisture than other African species, so slight moisture is needed to keep these properly in captivity. They are a chocolate to reddish-orange in overall color, and possess a thick metasoma. Although this species venom is not life threatening, take extreame caution so that stings don't occur. Very nice looking species!!

Scorpions


Dune Scorpion (Smeringus mesaensis)
WC 2", $15 each
Nice looking U.S. desert species, that makes a great dispay! Bright yellow overall, with a menacing look. Stings are painful, but this species is not dangerously venomous. Keep these on dry sand, and house separately. Neat Scorp!
