Mexican Whip Scorpion 2-4cm

Phrynus mexicanus is a large species of whip scorpion that requires a secure enclosure with plenty of hiding places and vertical surfaces to climb. This Mexican species enjoys a semi-arboreal enclosure with rocks and climbing places to explore.

Whip scorpions are unusual creatures that differ in appearance from typical scorpions. These creatures possess a long, thin tail that resembles a whip, which is a distinctive feature. Despite their appearance, whip scorpions are harmless to humans. The Mexican whip scorpion is known for its placid nature and resilience, making it a suitable species for captivity.

Ensure the terrarium is arboreal and spacious, as this species can reach lengths of up to 3 inches as adults.

To maintain optimal conditions, use a thermostat-controlled heating system to keep the terrarium temperature between 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with a slight decrease at night.

They are carnivorous and primarily prey on small insects, spiders, and other invertebrates for sustenance. In captivity, you can provide a variety of live foods such as crickets and mealworms to meet the dietary needs of Mexican whip scorpions.
