Perhaps this little caresheet could help. You can keep it like other Androctonus spp.
(PS. mauritanicus )
Think I am ready to jump up a notch in the hobby and am considering an Androctonus mauretanicus as my next scorpion. Would I use the caresheet for Androctonus Australis for this species? If not, what would be the proper setup for this scorpion? Also would appreciate any images that other members would have..
Next time try to use the search function...this thread http://arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=54711 was started only a little while ago. This species is kept the same as any other Androc species.
Humanity, what have you ever done for me?
They like it like most other species of androctonus hot and dry! They can be kept in a 5 gal (short) aquarium with dry sand (wetted,packed down and let dry) and a fiew flat stacked stones to hide under. Make sure the temp is around 86-90 and you should have a perfect set-up.
Yeah, requirements for all 'Andros' are the same: large Pet-Pal type plastic vivarium or 5.5 gallon (21 L) glass enclosure; keep it hot and dry, with good airflow; 3" (7.5 cm) layer of dry substrate and a few flat rocks (slate, fragments of terra cotta plant pots, etc.) and a light misting with room temperature, distilled water on a wall of the enclosure near substrate level at night; 1-2 times per month. Nothing too complex.
O my god A. mauritanicus, really one of the best choice. You will be a lucky man if you'll get one of this.
Eric: Are you already mauri father?
Excuse my english
Yes, Eric, tell us, did you get some little ones? we are all very impatient
Hi,Originally Posted by Androctonus_bic
I got several broods last year but nothing for the moment this year, I have 6-7 females gravid since 3-4 months, so I should have probably babies in the early part of spring.
Ok, remember me when it will hapen.
Excuse my english
