Looks like spores, fungi, or eggs of some other creature

Ok well its not eggs of another creature i can tell you that, as for spores or fungi i dont understand why it would just grow there, they dont seem to be attached to the substrate in anyway, just laying there

don't worry about it. It's looks like mould to me or fungus. The scorp won't be guarding it either, just in a position where it looks so.


Nothing to worry about Very Happy

If you want to. That's what i would do.

But they pose no threat, so i would take them out anyway rather than let it grow some more. Very Happy

Anything unusual like that should always be removed.

We occasionally get fungus (mushrooms) growing in tanks, usually from a contaminated coir blocks.

Thats scorpion poop dude...... the outside has hardened with the exposure to atmosphere and the inside is obviously still damp... its poop.... unless a high-definition photo can better indicate what it does...

After your scorp feeds, observe it for while.... When Hets or Emps poop, they will usually do it outside their burrow. Some like to do it in the water-bowl... If something white comes out at the base of the stinger (refer to anatomy) -

and its the same thing you saw... then its poop....

Razz

cheers, I sincerely hope it is Razz

Wish i could, unfortunatly i just bunned them all in the bin as advised lol, the one i found over by the female is right where she was eating a locust the night before and is usually where she hides so it could well be she ate it, poop, i find it lol.

But that still wouldnt explain why i managed to find about 5 in one place by the male which i never noticed before, so either i kept missing them when i looked under the hide everyday, or they all popped up at once, im not 100% sure but from what i think i know scorpions dont poop that often either?

If i find more will try get a better picture

I've seen H. longimanus drink out of a water bowl . . . everything else I've seen just drink from water droplets after a misting -- off of themselves, the substrate, or the tank walls.

i've never seen my scorps poop and I've had them for over a year. I have however think I've seen my het .spin drink. She would dip her claws in the water then bring them to her face as if she was sucking the water off

You probably will never see your scorps drink unless you're keeping the conditions too dry ... Then you might see them drinking. IIRC, I've only ever seen one of mine drink once.
