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.
V.confusus and V.carolineanus are communal in small numbers as long as they are all close to the same size. Though communal isn't always the best way to keep this species as fights and cannibalism may occur.
