beautiful and hardy captive has quickly become one of my favorite scorpions in my collection. My female just had 28 babies.

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?

    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?

      Thanks

    We recently had a scorpion but one morning I came out and she was dead. She had drowned herself in her water dish! I'm only assuming she drowned herself due to that's where I found her lifeless body. Any idea how this happened? We had sprayed her cage everyday, fed her every 3-4 days. More if she still seemed hungry. Cleaned her tank every few days.

      I also have an emperor scorpion. I was told if you put a wet sponge in the bowl they will get the water from that. With no water just the wet sponge. Maybe that's the difference. Maybe I get over my fear of holding it.

      I use "gut load" cricket water. It's kind of like tiny pieces of what looks like gel but it's water packed with vitamins. Scorpions drink it and can't drown in it.

    We recently purchased a scorpion from a local pet shop, after researching it, we discovered it`s a she. We`ve had her about a week, she isn`t eating and has become swollen. we haven`t handled her, so I don`t think it`s stress, the tank temp averages 78 degrees and she has adequate humidity. She`s still active at night but I`m beginning to worry. Any ideas?

      Hi, I have an Asian scorpion too but I never noticed him playing dead. He's quite nervous and alert and can be gluttonous - 2 crickets in one night! But he's a real beauty and sometimes he seems to be observing me more than I him. Hmmmm....
