PostSubject: Asian Rainforest scorpion's eating habits    10/19/2014, 10:03 pm

Hello everyone; I have had my Asian Rainforest Scorpion for a couple of month and everything has been going great. I buy 6 large crickets at a time and leave them in the scorpions habitat so she can feed as she needs. She typically eats one or two every couple days and the 6 crickets will last just longer than a week. Within the last week though, she ate 6 crickets within a 18 hour span and then finished off the one straggler the next day. I waited two days before getting more crickets and within 6 hours of putting them in the habitat, she has already ate 5. I've read about scorpions being over-fed and I am wondering if what I have been doing is wrong. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think you can overfeed a scorpion. They will stop eating when they don't want anymore food. Is she an adult? Could she be gravid?

I will say that you shouldn't leave a load of crickets in with her for long periods, though. Being stuck in an enclosed space with crickets running all over her for a week is probably going to be stressful. I would offer her several prey items once per week. If these aren't eaten overnight, remove them and try again in a weeks time.
