Hey guys, my het. is feeding like a beast. The norm is around 2-3 crickets a week but damn, i once fed him 9 in a week. Now he's eating like a cricket or two a day T_T. The thing is he's not even getting fat! No membranes are showing at all which is very surprising to me. He just eats and eats and is pretty lively. What do you guys think? Should I just continue the feeding frenzy? hehe What a Face

he must be processing foor very fast then.

weird.. I have scorpling in 84 - 90 degree heat and they'll only accept food once a week or so. but, they all grow at different rates.. I don't think it is cause for concern. but he will eventually stop eating.

I've never seen an obese scorpion. When it gets too stuffed, they just quit eating for a few months.

Of course, mine never get the chance -- I usually only feed every couple of weeks or so.

some scorps are notorious eaters. I had lq's that would eat beyond what they could handle and blimp up. They would become slow and beleive it or not would still eat if offered. I don't recommend you fatten it up it tends to problemize molts.
