CTTO: Skorpionzucht Stockmann & animalscene

A scorpion with potent venom, the Hottentotta franzwerneri was dubbed by A.A. Birula in 1914 as Buthus franzwerneri, derived from a male specimen collected by Franz Werner on Béni Ounif de Figuig in Algeria, bordering on Morocco. Birula also came up with the name Hottentotta in 1908, but originally as a subgenus under Mesobuthus. The species is confined to Algeria and Morocco.

Hottentotta franzwerneri is a medium-sized species that grows to a total length of 11 centimeters. The reticulated chelicerae range from yellow to black, while the carapace is also black with red-brown chela on the pedipalps and telson. The chelae have no carinae (keels). The legs are a contrasting yellow; black-legged populations have been previously assigned to subspecies gentili, which is now regarded as a true species.

Sexing the scorpions is easy- males have pectines close to one another, while there is a very noticeable gap for females.


Scorpions usually sell by instar, a developmental stage between each moult.

However for pricing convenience, this is a personal GENERAL guideline.

  1. Scorpling: i2 to i3
  2. Juvenile: i3 to i4
  3. Sub-adult: i4 to i5
  4. Adult: i5 and above
