If you mean Hadrurus arizonensis and it is older than about 5 instar, then it is most certainly wild caught. To date, no one has successfully raised a brood of this species. There must be an environmental factor that we cannot replicate in captivity.

Ah, I need to correct myself. There have been many successful breedings of H. arizonensis, and many broods raised successfully to a point. It is widely debated whether the species is mature at 5th or 7th instar, but the number is guessed to be within those bounds. Still it would be extremely difficult to find captive raised H. arizonensis beyond 3rd or 4th instar

Despite the fact that this species is possibly the largest of US scorpions and is well known and abundant throughout its distribution range, the primarily problem in breeding this species and in rearing the young is the lack of field data regarding almost every aspect of the life history of this large species. Courtship and mating wasn’t described until just recently (2000)! Fact is: no one knows anything about this large, widespread, numerically abundant, common inhabitant of the SW United States, and even less is known regarding its life history!
