Deathstalker Scorpion (Leiurus quinquestriatus)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Deathstalker is a species of scorpion, a member of the Buthidae family. It is also known as Palestine yellow scorpion. Known for having one of the most potent venoms out of all the scorpion species, if not the most, the Deathstalker Scorpion can create a highly dangerous situation for someone who has been stung. For advanced keepers who have the need to keep a dangerous scorpion like this, be very careful because the possibility of being stung is always there, no matter how "advanced" you know you are. With that said, I can move on. The Deathstalker Scorpion is a fairly large and aggressive scorpion species. There may be different color variations of this species in the wild, depending on locality, but it's not certain. The Deathstalker Scorpion is a bright and attractive species, with a relatively thin tail, which is unusual for venomous scorpions. Overall, when keeping the Deathstalker Scorpion, or any venomous arachnid for that matter, make sure it's in a container that it can't escape from, and never loose respect for the animal when you're dealing with it.

Range Deserts and scrubland from the Middle East to northern Africa, particularly
Egypt.
Type Burrowing.
Diet Babies eat pinhead crickets, and other small insects. Adults eat crickets,
mealworms, and other large insects.
Full Grown Size 3.5 to 4.5 inches.
Growth Medium to fast speed.
Temperature 70 to 80° F.
Humidity 65 to 70%. Adults may drink from a shallow, wide water dish.
Temperament Aggressive and nervous.
Housing Babies can live in a clear plastic deli-container with air holes. Adults can live in
a 2.5 to 5-gallon tank. Floor space is more important than height.
Substrate 3 to 5 inches of sand, peat moss, or potting soil.
Decor No decorations are really needed, but you can add rocks, or cork bark.
Other Names Death Stalker Scorpion, and Arabian Deathstalker Scorpion.

Pectinal tooth counts (PTC): Male- 31-36; Female 26-29. Pectines generally greater in length, with longer, more numerous teeth in males. Basal piece in males narrow allowing the basal pectinal teeth to touch or overlap. Basal piece wider in females, with shorter, less numeorus teeth; basal pectinal teeth do not touch or overlap. Males are typically smaller, thinner and less robust than females because of reproduction requirements.

the pectines on the underside of scorpions can be inspected to give u an idea of their scorpions sex. place the scorpion in a clear plastic tub and hold it up to inspect the underside of the scorpion. typically, males have longer combs on their pectines n females have shorter n often fewer combs on their pectines. males also vibrate their claws when mating and it also have elongated chelas. male is thinner than females n they are also smaller.
