Description


#MYWCO2012

The Asian forest scorpion is a common name for most of the Heterometrus so in asia. Their native habitat ranges from India to Malaysia. It is a large, stocky, heavy, black scorpion that may grow up to five inches in length.

They primarily live on the surface under rocks and logs, but do occasionally burrow. They look very much like emperor scorpions and are sometimes mistakenly sold as such in pet stores.

The forest scorpion is more aggressive than the emperor scorpion. They can be kept in groups, but it is not recommended due to their aggressive nature. They will assume all defensive posture more easily and are more likely to protect themselves with their pincers.

The venom from an Asian forest scorpion’s sting is mild. They are a very common scorpion kept as a pet.
