Heterometrus petersii as first scorpion questions.


Well-Known Member
Hi all
As per title I am thinking of getting myself a scorpion(Heterometrus petersii as this seems most available and goes to decent size)
I am still on research stage and all information I can find is years old.I dont know if things have evolved as far as housing ,care and husbandry goes.Does someone keep them?
Enclosure size for adult?Substrate, moisture , is drainage layer mandatory?Is humidity relevant or is achieved with moist substrate like moisture dependent tarantulas do I need to mist at all?
Regards Konstantin
