PostSubject: My first death...   2/12/2008, 3:02 pm

So today I found one of my emperor females laying on the ground away from the burrow. I nudged her and she didn't move. I flipped her over and finally realized she was dead. This is my first arachnid death and I have to say: it really sucks... I'm rather upset right now. Tonight I've decided I'm going to redo the entire setup, include a false bottom, larger water dish, the works. I don't know how this happened. They just got fed a few days ago and everyone seemed active and healthy. The temperature did drop dramatically today but it only changed a few degrees in their setup. This really really sucks.

The first death is always the shocker... Sorry to hear about yours. I just had my second brood of H paucidens, they were promptly ate as they came out and tried to get on the moms back. Sad

If you had an adult it was probably just age that done it in, I had one male drop dead drinking from the water dish. Found him face down in the dish.

I agree with the age diagnosis. I'm sorry to hear about your loss (my first death was a cool H. laoticus I'd had for less than a month).

I'm sorry to hear about your munchies as well, Thaedion!

Sad all around.

IF the temp dropped a lot it might just haved slowed down. Try to heat it up and see if it starts moving again.

Did you take out the water and put it back on the substrate. Sometime they "revive" I'll post my resurection story up later.

I've heard the ressurection stories so I put him in an ICU just before work. Not back yet... Telson is still white so it wasn't even mature... Sad day, here's a pic.

It was tragic. I was completely inconsolable until I bought another 5 scorpions. Then one of the LQs I got died as he tried to molt in transit. *Flicks tear away*

As terrible as losing a scorp can be, it completely changed my keeping habits. After my first Emp (Napoleon) died, I looked all over the 'Net for info on what I did wrong. Now, I have two new Emps, and about 8 tarantulas, a colony of isopods, and three millipedes. Did I mention that Napoleon was my first invert, and that I was pretty arachnophobic before I got him?
