    Hey all.
    I've been thinking about starting to get some inverts to go with my herps, and was looking at starting with a scorpion.
    What would everyone's pick be? I'm looking for ease of care and enclosure setup.
    I live in Melbourne so it gets fairly cold in winter

    I had a female Flinders Range Scorpion quite a few years ago. She was great to deal with and easy to look after. A great species to look at in my opinion!

    What sort of heating requirements would you suggest? If any are needed

    Personally I used a heat mat placed underneath the terrarium. I can’t remember the exact temperature they require but defiantly will need an external heat source.

    Have a look in “For Sale (Non Herp)” there were scorpions, including Black Rocks, posted about a week ago.

    I was looking at some websites, JJ's Little Stings seems to get awesome reviews and their Rainforest Scorpion Photo is absolutely adorable.
