Salt Lake Scorpion (Australobuthus xerolimniorum)

(8 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Category:


These spectacular scorpions are found exclusively on the surface of South Australia’s salt lakes. These medium-sized scorpions are entirely white in colour and are a moderate size of about 40mm in length. This species has long legs which they use to rapidly run around the salt lake each night searching for resting flies and small wolf spiders. They are active when the lakes are bone dry and also when the lake is full, and the surrounding shoreline is soaked with water.

While not lethal, the venom of this species has been reported to induce pain and vomiting, so care must be taken when dealing with these scorpions, as they can get a bit defensive at times.

    Received the scorps fast and in great health! Once again, love the caresheets provided by BugFrenzy. They make it so much easier to design enclosures and understand how to care for different species.
