PostSubject: One of my emperors and corners   11/9/2008, 10:45 am

This morning when I woke up and came to check on my scorpions, I found one of them in the corner of my aquarium. Usually, both come out at night, at the next morning I come to check on them, they are hidden. Both of them seem to try to climb out at night. I just find it strange that this morning he stayed out like this. Is there something wrong, I just changed the substrate to coco fibre yesterday. I just doesn't look like a "comfortable" position to stay in. [img][/img]

It's just that usually in the morning he's hiding that's what I found weird.

Scorps are weird; I come into the bug room at night and see my U. mordax in the exact same position -- some just forget to go back to their burrow during the day. Smile

Good job on changing the substrate. Looks much better now. Very Happy

Thanks! Came to check back on the lil guy, and he's still in his corner. He seems ok, I just got worried maybe, I'll get used to them soon, it's been only a week I got them.

Emperors are the rose-hairs of the scorpion world, and rose-hairs are the class clowns of the tarantula world.

They're just plain weird, and weirdness is very unsettling to the novice keeper.
