Orange rock scorpion (Lychas truncatus)

(3 customer reviews)


Out of stock


These small scorpions are found in gibber plains in the Stony Desert region, SA. Gibber consists of fine-grained, loose red dirt with a lot of flat, desert-varnished rocks and little to no changes in elevation or vegetation. This desolate habitat contains many of Australia’s coolest-coloured invertebrates. Purple centipedes, bright orange scorpions and zebra-striped cockroaches are just a few examples.

This species reaches 40mm in length and has a relatively timid temperament although they can be fast. We recommend a sealed container with very slightly moist red desert sand. a bark hide and some sphagnum moss for foraging will be appreciated by the scorpions too.

    This little critter arrived in tip top condition and has settled into his new home. First scorpion but I think we’ll be hooked and be back for more

    Bought this a few months ago so a rather late review but arrived safe and healthy and has been doing well, grown a bit since I’ve taken this picture too
