Cool. Just keep in mind that they are notorious for being nearly impossible to raise, but that does not mean it has never been done. However, being in Arizona may help a little.

Humidity is key when there this young even if they get a little mycosis they'll molt it out. I'd give him a humidity option for optimal molting success.

What do you suggest abyss? A little spray on the sides or so? I heard these guys have a tough time molting so I want to make sure I can raise him well. He ate last night and I gave him about a day to settle in. It's about 40-45% RH in my room and 84-85 degrees F.


Shredder have any suggestions on how I can keep him happy and healthy as well?

Sorry I'd quote but I'm at work on my phone thanks so much guys!!! Smile

Ask patrick about his set up,I instructed him on what I beleive would be the most optimal way to have the right amount of humidity. Unfortunatly the scorp hasn't molted yet to see if it was a success. But right now were at the experimental stage.

I don't keep these guys so i wouldn't know much, but all I can say is try to replicate their environment as best as you can.

This is my recommendation. Get a bottle or any container that you can bury in the substrate and punch tiny holes in it. Then fill it with moist coco fiber as moist as you would for and emp and bury it it in deeps sand. It will offer just a small amount of constant humidity where the scorpion is used to getting in...underground.

Cactus, you should do what Ed suggested. It hasn't been proven to work yet in MY conditions, but we'll get results very soon.

Here he is with the last meal he ate, he's refusing all other meals now.


I give him a month and a half, 3 months tops.

Thanks guys keep me informed on what you find out and how successful that guys molt is I suppose I could lightly mist a corner for now until I can make a tiny "humidity ball" so to speak. Appreciate the help though I know there above ground conditions because I live in it I can only assume they have a tiny rise in humidity below ground especially after some of the rains we have had. Ill also keep you posted on how my little guy does. Hopefully I won't go overboard with the humidity and cause mycosis haha.

I might do a little experiment myself with humidity using spray with 2 small haddys spraying one often say every 2 weeks and then one maybe every month to month and a half? I will see which one does better and grows or molts successfully. Please let me know if this idea for an experiment is dumb haha that's why I love this hobby there is so much to learn.

I've wanted to experiment with this but I don't think misting is a good idea...i mean I'd mist a side of the enclosure regardless to offer them water at least once a month but they prefer to be able to escape the humidity. If your going to spray instead of the technique I mentioned maybe you should spray under hides

Ill give the technique a try and probably get another one and test what happens to both. So when I do bury the bottle or "substrate holding container" do I burry it under the hide or just anywhere in the substrate? Thanks again for all your help guys ill keep you posted on when I get another and what happens to both.

I think one corner of the enclosure would work best of course that just speculation.

I'm hoping this technique works as it'll probably be the cheapest most efficient way of doing it. I've had success in the past but it involved a ton of sand and a huge enclosure.

Thanks! What would you suggest for a small specimen haddy? Say for one thats kept in a deli cup?

As far as misting for water im thinking just one spot about an inch wide in the deli cup?

As for the technique im thinking of taping 2 basic store bought 24 pack water bottle caps together with emperor moist coco fiber substrate in them then drill holes in the tops of the caps then place it deep in the sand substrate within the deli cup.

What are your thoughts on this do you believe this could be a good way of creating a good amount of humidity for molting to simulate underground conditions? Or do you believe in such a small enclosure that this could create a harmful amount of humidity and become unhealthy for the haddy?

I will get another specimen and have one using the bottle cap technique and spray for a water source, and one being a control specimen only using spray and no bottle cap technique.

Hard to say, i wouldn't take the chance of using deli's maybe a small kritter keeper would more appropiate.
