This species is from the Vaejovidae family which is a group of small sized scorpions found Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico. They are very easy to keep and the substrate can be sand, dry peat, dry soil, or a mixture of any of those. You can also mix in some rocks or pebbles to the substrate. A piece of bark or wood works good for a hide and a place where they dig under. They are a fun scorpion to keep as they tend to be very active and can detect prey from far away by feeling the vibrations from the ground.
