No, they donít. They are a burrowing species so they do require deeper substrate but as far as climbing, they arenít very good at it and are rather clumbsy.

oh and also, what is the minimum cage size? he about 4 inches. i was also planning on putting some plants in because he is a rainforest species. would plastic plants be ok? if not, what kind of real plants?

I keep two adults in a 10 gallon. You can keep one in a large kritter keeper or a 5 gallon tank but anything smaller would probably be kind of cramped.
Youíll want to feed it at least 2-4 prey items per week.
Yes you can use artificial plants. They tend to be easier anyway since they donít require anything to survive and they wonít attract bugs. Donít be suprised though if your scorpion does its own "re-arranging". They have a habbit of moving anything and everything where they want it to make the "ideal" burrow spot(s).

OK. thanks for the help on that. would cypress mulch be a good substrate?i have it about 3 inches deep. just one more question i was curious about, if the venom was took out of a scorpion, would it die?
