Seems you can almost get anything so availability probably isnt a problem.

As far as scorpions that are native to the US I think that Centruroides vittatus have very nice lines and colors.

imo id say tri color burrowing scorps, and olive knee flat rocks are the prettiest. {D

gotta go with C vittatus, no doubt the most beautiful of the US natives, except for MAYBE C. excilicauda gertschi or C. hentzi

the closest dealer i know of with vittatus to you iis Darin at golden pheonix exotics. Although if you wait till early june, you could take a road trip to pheonix and buy scorps in person at thee ATS 2005 convention. for details check out www.atshq.org. in any case, good luck finding a US scorp with more color thaan this!

I totally agree with Brian, B. jacksoni are awesome colors, I have about 35 babies soon to be ready! IMO they are one of the most colorful with the exception of the ones your looking for GreenFire... but I like the Hadrurus sp. as well, beautiful yellows on these guys and very active.

yep, i have one H. spadix and i absolutely love this guy, i cant say one is my fav over another one cuz i love all the lil buggers! But the personality of the Hadrurus sp. is awesome, every time i do tank maintenance, he struts out and does his threat display like hes saying "im here, you better watch out" then scuttles back into his hide...

good luck,
Jeko
