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.

Very nice looking species!!

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!
