You don't have to handle them, but sometimes it's necessary during tank maintenance, and it's handy when you're doing invert demonstrations. The best way for me is to place one hand on the substrate and use the other to "scootch" them on.

Congratulations, by the way. Very Happy What sort of setup do you have?

You can also scoot them into a deli cup and sort of "dump" them onto your hand. I find that method to be one of the easiest/safest, unless, of course, you have a Hell spawn demon emperor like what I started with. He was an emp on the outside and an Androctonus on the inside -- or so he thought Razz

You have to check in your preferences to make it show up with every post. I'll see if I can do it from the admin control panel, but if not, it's pretty easy to fix yourself. Smile

Edit: done, it should show up with subsequent posts. By the way, only genus is capitalized in scientific names (not species) and if you want to get real technical, it should be italicized, like Pandinus imperator.

EEEEEKKKKKKKK!


bark isn't very good, it doesn't hold humidity and is generally... just not recomended.

try something like coco fibre or peat moss. I use terra-spider, witch is great.

also, bark does not allow for burrowing.

Replace it with either coconut fiber or peat when you get a chance. Bark doesn't hold humidity and doesn't allow them to burrow.

Unfortunately that guy deleted his YouTube account and disappeared from the hobby . . . No

Sorry to repeat what you said, S111, but my cache was being weird and didn't show the last three posts when I replied.

If y ou really must handle, just put your hand 3 inches away from them and gently nudge them onto your hand.
You will have no probs unless you have an emp with an attitude, I Have one that will not be moced he will turn and grab anythng and try to sting. But hes just unusually aggressive
