Comments: A scorpion enclosure for a Centruroides species


In the afternoon I moved a scorpion, belonging to the genus Centruroides, to a larger enclosure. The scorpion was wild collected as a juvenile in the state of Chiapas, close to the city of Tapachula the 4th of February 2006. The scorpion had been several time through ecdysis: the casting off of the old exoskeleton (molting) - the most recent one about a month ago. I am quite sure that this scorpion is a Centruroides species, possible Centruroides gracilis, a species that's in my experience abundant in several states of Mexico.
