PostSubject: Feeding my scorpion.    2/14/2015, 5:12 pm

Just got a Florida bark scorpion. I have its enclosure all set up but im kinda iffy about feeding it in there since it has alot of room for the feeders to hide . I put it in a small container and threw a cricket but Its been hanging on to it for a while now, obviously it takes a while for it to finish eating. Should I be worried about having tiny dubia's hiding around in the enclosure or is it pretty good at hunting them down?

bark scorps in enclosures would normally forage for prey in the substrate at night then get back up once they've captured prey. Dubias rarely move though the slightest movement will give them away as food

Most would. Depending on the keepers feeding preference. I usually just give what my scorp can eat. I toss one in, after it finishes i toss another one in. If it doesn't eat anymore i'll take the feeders out and feed again after a couple of days. No need to do put a lot of feeders in. Only stresses the scorp
