Asian Forest Scorpions are a large black species native to forested areas of South East Asia from India to Malaysia. It is a large, stocky, heavy, black scorpion that may grow up to five inches in length. They primarily live on the surface under rocks and logs, but do occasionally burrow. They look very much like emperor scorpions as adults but can be a bit aggressive. They can be kept in groups, but it is not recommended due to their aggressive nature. They will assume a defensive posture more easily and are more likely to protect themselves with their pincers. The venom from an Asian forest scorpion’s sting is mild.
