More info: Tityus species are fairly new to the hobby and demand a high price. Tityus bahiensis is yet another beautiful scorpion with its bright orange and contrasting black colors. This scorpion is also from Brazil where it is often confused with Tityus serrulatus which looks fairly similar. Both are highly venomous.

Because of the toxicity of this species, it is for experience keepers only.
