I haven't seen my three emps since putting them in there new home.

(see fist post) = http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/the-burrow-in-ghana-emperor-zone-f34/new-fishbowl-setup-t2166.htm

so I turned the bowl round to look at the back of the substrate and it sems they have been busy at work for the past three days.

Burrow entrance;








Kinda wishing I didnt use vermiculite now, because they're hollowing out the whole bottom as we speak, pulling it all up to the entrance and messing up my nice tidy tank Bang Head

we live and learn!

Pure awesome. Very Happy Emps, especially juveniles, are little bulldozers. Mine brought a bunch of gravel from their false-bottom up to the top.

I wouldn't have used vermiculite in the first place 'cause it can stick to their exoskeletons. I doubt it will be a problem, and it will come off when they molt, but it looks weird.

it doesnt look very humid in their tank. There is no water droplets on the walls of the tank.

If you dont have it covered, I would suggest pouring water on *slowly and carefully, you dont want it to water log and end up drowning them* the substrate to soak it and then maybe with cling film, cover the top leaving a gap to one side for good air flow.

water droplets on a glass tank is caused by condensation, for condensation to occur water vapour has to come into contact with a cold surface. The heat from my lamp and mat directly behind the burrow is preventing this from occuring as the glass is not cold to touch. think of your heated back windscreen, or the heated mirrors for bathrooms that dont steam up. As for clingfilm, or covering the top, I think this is unnecessary as it has never caused problems before, I would consider doing it if I was to go on holiday. The humidity at ground level rarely drops below 70% and if it does its only because I forgot to spray the sub.
I am new to scorps but I have successfully kept Euathlus truculentus, Euathlus pulcherrimaklaasi, Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens, Lasiodora parahybana, poecilotheria metallica, multiple brachypelma species, as well as Ranitomeya vanzolinii, Ranitomeya flavovitatta, Mantella pulchra, Dendrobates auratus.
wow i've banged on quite a bit here, dont know what came over me. I'm even thinking of just deleting it all and replacing it with, ''I've got it covered'' but theres nothing i hate more than wasting time so I cant bring myself to do it, lol, thanks for your concern,

merry christmas!

ya know I never thought about those orb enclosures as housing before, they look pretty cool dont they?

I suppose it would encourage some cool tunnels because of the curved side. hmmmmm....

He's got a point, I suppose. Smile I took heat and mass transfer; I should know (but only if I bother to think about it Razz).

You know I would be tempted to try it if I had some a scorp that was small enough as adult to be comfortable in one, what about Smeringurus Mesaensis?

Nt that I'd have the room for a bowl anyways I'm chock full right now lol.

dunno about S.mesaensis, as far as I can remeber these scorpions like to have a good area to move around at night. And by the time the substrate is deep enough for the scorpion to burrow there wouldn't be much room left.

True, I only had a small bit of experience with S. Mesaensis when I worked in an exotic shop and caresheets are like gold dust.
