Woodie the fiesty scorpion!

Suitable for beginner and intermediate keepers.

This species is found in SA, NSW and VIC Mallee. Cercophonius scorpions are unusual in that they’re exclusively winter active, with them burying themselves about 30cm under the ground in summer and spring. It is usually the reverse for scorpions. We theorise it’s to reduce competition from the summer-active Buthidae.

Wood Scorpions are mildly venomous and can be quite feisty!  We found them to be good eaters and very entertaining to watch.
Feeds on small invertebrates once a week. Adult length (including tail) from 30-35mm.
Usually prefers to live alone unless paired as male/female and close eye is kept on them for hostility.
