Haven't seen my scorpion (Pandinus Cav, Red Claw) in almost 2 weeks. It dug a fairly long and deep burrow. Hasn't came out in almost 2 weeks. Didn't know it it was dead or alive. Started poking around, removing some of the substrate trying to find it, suddenly something grabs onto the small dowel I was digging with. Apparently, it's alive and well in there. Prob mad that I disturbed it though. I damage the burrow with the digging. I hate that because I don't want to stress it. Just wanted to make sure it was ok. Is it normal for red claws to stay in heir hole for long periods of time? I guess I'm gonna get it out, and try and get it to start a new burrow where I can at least see a bit of it through the glass.

Yeah, Pandinus species are obligate burrowers - expect them to dig when given the opportunity and disappear for extended periods of time.

Felt bad about messing with his set up. Just finished "re doing" his substrate to fix the hole I dug. Moved him to a temp container, took some substrate out. Moved both hides towards the front instead of the back corners. Made the substrate shallower in the back, 3", and about 4 1/2" in the front. I did have it nearly 6" level all around before. Hoping it will burrow towards the front this time so I can keep an eye on it better. Hasn't taken a cricket in 2 weeks either, but took 2 in 3 days right before that. Read that it's normal for them to go without food for a good while though.

I don't think you made it mad.

Mine doesn't really burrow too deep. If anything, he hides under his rock or pushes up his "pool" and goes under there for at most, a day at a time.
