Mid to late juvenile approx 4cm body (not including tail)

The Asian forest scorpion, Heterometrus species, is a brilliant beginner-friendly scorpion species popular for its ease of care, size, and docile temperament. These arachnids are arguably the most popular species of scorpion in the hobby, outdoing even the ’emperor’ due to its similar appearance and affordability. Heterometrus genus can be found in Asian countries such as Malaysia, Cambodia, and thailand, and can grow to around 6-8 inches long comprising of particular species such as spinifer and Silenus, which are decently large species. Asian forest scorpions are placid in nature, with stings being exceptionally rare due to their preference to instead pinch. In fact, their stings are incredibly mild, on par with that of a bee sting. Despite this, the chance of being pinched or stung is very low, making these critters an option for keepers interested in handling their pet scorpions. Under UV light, this critter glows a vibrant neon turquoise, and, although entirely black, this blue tint can be seen ever so slightly under daylight, making them appear more of a very dark green / navy colour. These arachnids love to explore during the evenings and at night, and so benefit from a large and stimulating environment in which they can hunt, burrow, and climb around. Live plants, deep substrate, cork bark, and other decorative items will be highly appreciated. A deep, moisture retaining substrate allows for the scorpion to create stable burrows, and a water dish should be provided to ensure the scorpion remains suitably hydrated. Humidity levels should be kept at around 70% relative humidity, with temperatures around 23c. Asian forest scorpions will happily accept locusts, mealworms and crickets and are overall a simple animal to care for. Overall, the Asian forest scorpion is a highly recommended option for first time scorpion/invertebrate keepers due to their calm docile nature, handleability, simple care requirements and large size.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

When you receive your order, open it up and locate the transport container your pet is inside. Gently ease out your pet into the home you’ve prepared for it.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
