How I keep mine

I keep my Tail-less Whip scorpions in a large plastic box but a fish tank with a lid would do just as well. They are very easy to keep and require minimal care.  I use peat, coir or vermiculite as a substrate and place pieces of bark and coconut shells on the floor for them to climb on and hide under. They like to climb so a few twigs are appreciated as well. I keep the box warm with a heat mat and provide a dish of water with tissue in it to prevent any youngsters drowning. I find they breed well and seem to live happily together in an established colony but take care when adding any new individuals as they can fight. The eggs are held in a brood pouch by the female for several months, once they hatch the babies stay on mum's back until moulting. I feed my Tail-less Whip scorpions once a week with various sized crickets and other small bugs as available, cockroaches, moths, flies etc. I spray the box with tepid water when necessary, usually about twice a week. They are quite secretive, preferring to come out at night but they seem happy to be handled and are amazing to watch (I love their long antennae). They are one of my favourite pet bugs and are completely harmless with no stings or large jaws but they can run fast!
