If you have a pregnant emperor scorpion in a tank and you put a male in there with her will she kill the male scorp? I know they kill the male after mateing but if she's already pregnant will she ?

    These animals are loners. Females will live with and care for their young, but an adult is a different matter. They should be kept separately.

Hi I've had my scorpion for about 6 month already and about 2 days ago I came home and found him laying sideways almost on his back as if it was dying, I got very scared so I put him back on his stomach and changed his water and house stuff, now he's very sluggish and I've noticed he's not eating and not moving at all, I'm terrified of losing him, read they molt and I haven't seen him doing that and I stop over feeding him but he also is losing a leg like once a month and I know he is stressed because I've always had a light on for him, please please what should I do I don't want to lose him and I can't find a vet that take scorpions

    Sounds like the fella is going into his first molt. Age is right and that is what it sounds like. They become very lethargic and stop eating.
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-12-21
    I am sorry your little guy passed. It is hard but you don't know for sure what happened and some things are just hard to know.
  • lizmarie colbert - 2011-12-21
    Yea your %100 percent right, but I guess I didn't have the temeture just right for him and he couldn't molt becuse of me not knowing what I'm doing now I found him upside side down I think I'vee cried like 2 hours but well learn for next time!
  • lizmarie colbert - 2011-12-21
    Well thanks it nice to know there people out there who care about scorpions just as if they where dogs or cat but yea I'll be fine. I just can't wait till I go and get me I think they are the best animals a person could have Thanks

I have 18 black emperor scorplings that need homes ASAP. They were born in April 2010. I bought the "mom" from a breeder in Cleveland and it turned out she was pregnant :/

They are all in a 55 gallon aquarium right now. I'd like to give away the whole thing but I'm willing to give them away individually.

    How big are your scorplings ? How much are you selling them for? If you have any males I would be interested in buying 1 or 2.

    I've been looking to breed my female emporer scorpion. I bought her a few months ago from a pet shop and I'm willing to pay for shipping if you still have your scorpions. I'd be willing to take 5 or so. I've got a nice 100 galon tank with plenty of moss and watering pans and a nice humidifier I found on amazon. Maybe hit me up :) thanks
  • jonathan - 2011-08-21

  • christopher martinez - 2011-08-28
    sorry to hear that but if so i would like to take the whole thing off your hands and give them a good home
  • Richard Carroll - 2011-10-15
    I'm very interested in buying a scorpion from you. I do want just one as I am a beginner. If you still have some left please contact me by my e-mail. I also have some questions about their habitat. I've heard many different things, but would like to hear it from someone who actually has experience. I know I keep seeing them in sand at pet stores and am now reading that is wrong for the emperor. Even if you have none left I'd still like to talk about habitats and if you might put me in touch with a breeder. What got my attention with you is the word "breeder". I want one from a breeder and NOT from the wild. I have no interest in people destroying colonies just to sale. I was looking for a female, but you saying yours was preggy when you got her kinda spooked me cause I have only a 15 gallon tank at the moment. Please contact me if you can help me out or get me in the right direction. Thanks for your time, Richard

I just bought a desert scorpion and he is my first one. I was just wondering since we keep our house at about 70 degree if I should buy some kind of lamp to keep him warm?

  • Charlie Roche - 2011-10-17
    You can scroll up in the article and minimum temperature should be at 75 degrees. I'd get a lamp and at least have it on one end of the enclosure so your little guy can get warmer if he wants.

Ok I bought an emperor scorpion and she had babies bout 2 weeks after I bought her. I just want to know how to keep the humidity at a normal level. I can't seem to get to stay at a high level. I use the shreaded coconut stuff. Least that's what they told me to use at the pet store. The humidity stays bout 40% to 65 70% bout and hr after I mist the cage. I also have a small heatin pad under one side of the tank. Is there anything else or anything different I need to do? The babies are bout to come into their first molt and I don't want any of them to die much less her so if theres anything I can do different please let me know please asap. Thanks!!! Dustin'

    OK... strangest question you may encounter... A striped scorpion got trapped and died inside one of pieces of my breast pump while being stored. I was able to push him out with a bobby pin, clean the pieces, and sterilize (not sanitize) in microwave steam sterilizer. The pieces are made of plastic and were stored in a non-climate controlled area. Is there any reason that the pieces would be unsafe? I can buy replacement parts if necessary.

      Not the strangest question ever and I understand. I do not know but the scorpion would have to sting something in order to transfer venom from the something to something else. If the surfases are hard and then washed and sterilized, I would think it would be fine. My bigger problem is I have no idea what a breat pump looks like but if all hard surfaces it should be fine. Of course the not knowing would make me crazy so why not just get another one. If my finger itched, I would start to wonder .....

      Are you able to tell if any are females yet? If so I would really like one. Do you think it would survive a trip to Texas?
