Description


Size: 9cm
LD50: 1.21 mg/kg

Androctonus bicolor or more commonly known as Black fat–tailed scorpion is a scorpion species of the family Buthidae. Androctonus is widespread in North and West Africa, the Middle East, but the wider family tolerates a wider range of habitats. This relates to the fact that black fat-tailed scorpions are rather efficient when temperatures range from 85 °F-95 °F, as this temperature allows for productive growth. Black fat–tailed scorpions are normally found in arid or semi-arid areas as well as margins of desert areas, typically areas with sandy soil. They generally prefer warm and dry areas.

These scorpions is black in colour and can grow up to 9 cm. They enjoy making scrapes with wood and rocks, and are nocturnal, thus they hide in crevices or certain objects during the day. They tend to move very fast, and are of an aggressive nature. Black fat–tailed scorpions can live for up to 5 years.
