• Laos Giant Forest Scorpion (Heterometrus laoticus) Adult/Sub-adult

Common Name: Laos Giant Forest Scorpion
Scientific Name: Heterometrus loaticus

Status: Wild Caught

A giant black forest scorpion, active and easy to keep.

How I keep mine

I keep my forest scorpions separately in plastic boxes with peat or coir on the base and pieces of bark or half a flower pot to hide under. I place my boxes on a shelf with a heat mat on it, I use a strip heat mat (15cm wide) and this covers part of the base of the box (several boxes can fit on one long mat). Like most bugs it is a good idea to give them a dry and a damp area to choose from. I find the area above the heat mat is dry and the area not covered by the heat mat is more moist.  I use plastic boxes for my scorpions as I have lots of species and don't have the space to keep them all in individual tanks but of course they do equally well when housed in a plastic or glass tank and are much more visible. I feed my scorpions on crickets or cockroaches once a week.
