I bought a Scorpion in TX about 6 months ago. I managed to get her all the way back to WI. Everyone that hears the word "Scorpion" is amazed to hear I have one and they take immediate interest. My girlfriend's mother said she hated anything with 8 legs, but fell in love with it and my GF wants one too! If you ever thought about getting one DO IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Well, about 4 months ago my girlfriend and I purchased a single emperor scorpion from a local pet shop. at the time, we had no clue if it was male or female, and really didnt care! we were just excited to finally have one.

as of today, we figured out that it's female...
we had quite the shock when we went to look at it and discovered 25-30 little white baby scorpions clinging to her back! to be completely honest im still in shock as i write this.

with all the wonderfulness, now we just have the problem of figuring out what to do with them all!

My friend ate an Emperor this weekend, pretty amazing creature. He said it tasted like burnt pop-corn, who would have thunk it.

It was not previously mentioned, so I ought to add that adding a black light to your terrarium will not only provide a slight amount of heat but also give your scorpion(s) a bright Twilight Zone like greenish glow in the dark. For those of you interested in keeping a scorpion, I wish you the best of luck and hope that you fall in love with those magnificent creatures of darkness.

Of all exotics pets Emperor Scorpions are by far the most amazing. Bought Napolean 18 months ago and she gave birth to a brood about a year ago... Nothing has been more interesting than watching and helping these children of the Emp grow and mature.

Pandinus Emperator: A perfect organism. Its structural perfection is only surpassed by its hostility. I own an Emperor Scorpion, named him Maximus. I admire its purty, its sense of survival, unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

I got two emperors and knew one was a male the other was a female. When I put them together they started what it looked like was fighting. Then one ran off. The next day I was looking up how to breed tem and it turned out that they were not fighting they were BREEDING!

I bought an emperor scorpion about 4 months ago and just recently it has had a baby. the scorpion has not had any contact with any other scorpions. Either the scorpion was already pregnant or maybe it sexually reproduced. Either way it is pretty cool.
