I was keeping my adult son's emperor scorpion for the last two years and I came home to find it dead. I ran around & bought another the same size. But now, 2 months later, I found about twenty little white babies today, 03/29/08. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have had an Emperor scorpion for about six months and he has not molted yet. I think that he is starting to. From my research I have found that about 24 hours or so the scorpion will become pretty sluggish. That has happened, but it has been for about four days now. Won't eat or drink. He is 8 inches long and probably an older scorpion. He barely moves, just sits in his den. His whole under belly is a yellowish brown color. His pectins on his belly also look a little smaller than I remember. I wonder if this is a process of molting, and maybe it is too hard of a molt this time around or is he sick from something else? If anyone can shed a little light on the subject, I could use a little help. He is the best pet I ever had, and I really don't want him to die.

My son bought a female emporer scorpion a few months ago, knowing she was pregnant. We kept waiting and waiting, well she has now given birth. WOW!

I have just purchased a desert hairy and was told by the shop keeper, after HE inspected it, that it may be pregnant due to its swollen stomach. He did this with a look on his face that wasn't fitting but on reading this care sheet, I think he knew that this scorpion probably had an ailment. Thank you for this care sheet, very informative.

I purchased an Emperor Scorpion about two months ago. The gentleman that was at the pet store was very helpful. I got home this morning from work and found my scorpion dead in its cage. I did everything that I was told to by the man in the pet store who has had scorpions for more than 20 years. I handled the scorpion about twice a week like I was told. I wish I knew why it died.

I have just gotten a 2 cm baby hadrurus arizonensis, captive bred of course. It's got one hell of an apetite and it's great to handle. Hopefully won't have any molting problems as he grows. Great Care Sheet. Thanks.

I actually just bought a Red Clawed Scorpion a few weeks ago. It's an agressive little snot but he is awesome. Sometimes I can handle it but not often. It is absolutely amazing to watch it eat on account of how brutal it is to its prey. I hope to get an Emperor soon and maybe sometime a Deathstalker. But yeah, a scorpion is an awesome pet. Not only are they cool but also people find you incredibly brave for handling them on account of modern stereotypes. So if you start out with an Emperor or a Red Clawed and you should do fine.

    I really just started getting interested in scorpions about 2-3weeks ago then randomly find this website. I didn't know you could actually get one as a pet and be able to handle it, especially without being stung. This is so cool though I know my parents won't let me have one. Just saying from what I found isn't the death stalker the most poisonous one though?

There is no question about it: this is the best beginner scorpion. I just received one the other day and he's a very stocky, impressive scorpion! Ive wanted one of these all my life and now I finally own one, WOOHOO! But seriously, this is a BEAUTIFUL scorpion. The only thing is that it scared my relatives silly when they came over to visit:D

I think you have an H. laoticus pictured not an H. spinifer. I have both and successfully reproduced from both species. I handle these on a daily basis and had been pinched only once, when i stupidly picked up this laoticus a little too quickly. They DO NOT readily sting but will try to scare you off by doing a quick pinch. If you want to see some action, give them something large for them thats frisky, a locust, large roach or even a small mouse. =)
