PostSubject: Mysterious (?) death   7/15/2009, 3:15 am

I was checking my scorps and i noticed one b.gigas turned upside down on the substrate.I do not know how it had died, but it never woke up while i had it in a small container ,just in case.
I was wondering how this had happened.Was it because it was dry, or because i had not fed it for a week?
The other gigas was alive and plump (they are fed the same days).

Can anyone give me any tips about humidity in their enclosures?
The scorp was 2i.

Thanks in advance

Keep it in the container for a week just to be sure this isnt one of those rare situations where they are "dead" to the point you could swing them by the tail and then a week later just come back to life!

I highly doubt it, because it was found like it had spasms of some kind, like it was twisted.
Now it is extremely stiff, tail straight, and legs curled.

I have added substrate to the other enclosure and have the 1/3 of it very moist (like my emperors')

That sucked for me, my first death..

Some juveniles just die randomly. Don't beat yourself up.
