Welcome to our Newest Residents

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo welcomes its newest residents - 20 Baby Flinders Ranges Scorpions. Only a month old and as small as a finger nail, these little scorpions are mildly venomous but non-lethal.

Wild Flinders Ranges Scorpions are only found in the Flinders Ranges and as one of Australia's largest and longest lived scorpion species, they face constant threat from poachers wanting to sell these creatures to pet stores.

The babies born at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo are a rare and unexpected surprise as Flinders Ranges Scorpions are not often born in captivity and the mature female can hold pregnancy for upwards of a year.

The zoo's 20 baby Flinders Ranges Scorpions are currently behind-the-scenes in keepers' care until they are mature enough to be on display for WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo guests to enjoy.
