Vaejovis carolinianus Caresheet

Post by Gnat on Sun Jan 10, 2010 10:53 pm

Distribution: southeastern US. Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, western North Carolina, western South Carolina, Tennessee, western Virginia

The young are best housed individually in small 2 oz. deli containers with a small hide and several small holes for ventilation.

The adults can be housed together, if fed regularly, in plastic shoe boxes with holes drilled in them or in small kritter keepers.( less than 12in. X 12in.) A water dish should be provided for the adults to drink from. Also there should be an ample number of hides.

Peat moss or coco fiber
Place 2-3 in. of peat moss or coco fiber on the bottom of the enclosure and keep it moist.

Temperature: 70-90°F
Maintain the temperature at 70-90°F. The higher the temperature (within this range) the faster the scorpions will grow, breed, and give birth. A brief cooling period for the adults at 55°F during the fall will encourage breeding.

Humidity: 70-80%

Diet: Crickets or roaches
Feed the scorpions crickets or roaches that are smaller than the scorpion itself. Juneviles can be fed wingless fruit flies or pinhead crickets. Feed the adults once every week and the juveniles twice weekly. Remove prey if it has not been eaten within 24 hours and also remove any remains of eaten prey, such as legs, wings, etc. If the remains are left for an extended period of time an infestation of mites may occur.
