PostSubject: New scorpion setup   3/2/2009, 2:33 am

Just set up a divided terrarium for my H. Longimanus and my fiance's P. Exitalis.



Substrate is 3" of organic potting soil with about 1" of gravel for a false bottom.

Any feedback is welcome

^Emps can and will submerge themselves if given the opportunity. It takes days for one to drown.

As long as it can climb back out, there isn't a problem.

And Rasputin, there's PLENTY of ventilation in there, so I'm not too worried. I'll keep an eye on it though.

Thanks, man. The Longimanus is mine, and the Exitalis actually belongs to my fiance. She has to keep her bugs at my house, but since both of those scorps needed an upgrade, I put them in the divided cage. It worked out. :p

Don't think they have one . . . most of the genus can just be called "Asian forest scorpions."
