PostSubject: Question please   4/8/2009, 9:30 pm

My P.cav has been burrowing ALOT and not eaten anything in a month. I think He is molting he is only a few months old.
My issue is I threw a couple crickets in days ago and they retreated into his burrow that consists of several tunnels how can I get the crickets out without ruining his burrow? should I be worried about them harming my scorp?

I'd be a little worried. If he molts, he'll be vulnerable to cricket bites. I'd keep a close eye. Maybe setting out some fruit far outside the burrow to lure them out?

They'll come out at night make sure the water is deep enough for the crix but not for the scorp. They'll drown. If that doesnt work....destroy the burrow. He'll rebuild.

I pu in a piece of potato and I caught one. There are still 2 more.
I really don't want to wreck his burrow it's soooo cool the piece of drift wood is like a cave he has three openings around the tank and all the tunnels lead up to one opening in the casm of the driftwood.

Maybe try getting roaches after this episode?

I agree with Eddy's advice.

Pandinus cavimanus make fantastic burrows but...if it was me, I would smash the burrow and get them out. Or saying that, maybe he HAS eaten them already which is why only one of the crickets came out for the food offering.

He will rebuild, he wont hold it against you. Ok, he will be annoyed Razz but wont wave his claws at you saying "curses" teehee
