product highlights

The Asian Forest Scorpion is more aggressive than the emperor scorpion. They can be kept in groups, but it is not recommended due to their aggressive nature. They will assume a defensive posture more easily and are more likely to protect themselves with their pincers. The venom from an Asian forest scorpion's sting is mild. They are a very common scorpion kept as a pet.

Species:
Asian Forest Scorpion
Environment: Tropical Terrarium
Maturity Size: Maximum size 5"
Experience Level: Advanced
Compatibility: Communal
Traits: Avoid handling
Life Span: Average 5-8 years

Care Instructions:
A ten gallon aquarium or terrarium is required with an under-tank heat pad on one side of the tank. The habitat needs a shallow water dish as well as a hiding area. If multiple scorpions are in a tank, multiple hide areas should be provided. The substrate should be 3-4 inches deep. The scorpion's diet is easily maintained with gut-loaded crickets or mealworms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pets for People who want a Observational Pet I did not purchase my Asian Forest Scorpion from Petsmart but I wanted to give my honest opinion on them. I got mine from a reptile expo about 8 months ago. Mine is quite defensive but it is what I expected I had done a lot of research before I purchased one. They make amazing display animals and makes a good low maintenance, cheap pet. They make amazing pets for people who still want a pet but have a busy life and don't have time to handle a pet. Mine prefers to lay in his log hide and on feeding week he enjoys to go crazy over his food. It is very enjoyable to watch him hunt. I also give his diet a large variety so he doesn't get bored. I feed him crickets, superworms, and dubia roaches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We got an Asian forest scorpion from PetSmart a few months ago and she has been a really interesting addition to the family. She's very active at night so we have a dark light on her so we can watch her bulldoze the substrate and rearrange her habitat. During the day she hangs out in her hide with her claws out. Beautiful and interesting easy to care for pet. Here is a photo of our beautiful Artimus!

Do you have to be 18 to purchase a scorpion

Asked by: Heck29
You have to be 18+ to purchase a scorpion from Petsmart. As long as you have a parent or legal guardian with you to sign off on the papers to purchase your new scorpion you can purchase one.

do they have poision?

Asked by: juan77
Different species of scorpions vary when it comes to how venomous they are. The Asian Forest Scorpion in particular is midly venomous. There sting is about as mild as a bee sting. Some people do have allergic reactions to the venom and will need medical attention immidietly but is uncommon to have a reaction.
