Hi, i have some geckos but i never had a scorpion. I just was wondering what would be a good beginner scorpion who’s not dangerous. Also how much would it be and what are the tank requirements?

thanks

well an emperor scorpion is a good beginner it is not really dangerous its sting is only like a bee sting and a 10 gal tank should be good enough to keep about 3

Actually a 10 gallon is only large enough for 2...not 3 (adults that is)

What I would suggest is to do some reading up on Pandinus imperator.
Here is a general caresheet on the species. P. imperator The care sheet is below the fourth picture down in the thread.

I prefer you get a red-claw emperor scorpion they are really easy to take care of and dont take much attention they dont seem to sting you or i myself have never heard of anyone getting stung by one they do pinch but it doesn’t hurt.All it requires is coconut fiber or thats what i prefer and a small water dish not to high to were he cant get out of it, a rock or piece of wood for it to go under, and if you want u can get a heating pad,and feed him atleast 5 large crickets a week and should get at least a 10 gallon tank.Wait one tiny thing more.You should get a water bottle moister thing and spray his tank 2-3 times a week and keep his water fresh and thats about all you will need
