I have a nutty Emperor that enjoys climbing, often two feet in the air. Maybe these scorpions would live in the trees if there were any in the desert!

Probably because it's drier at the top and that huge water dish is making it way too humid. There's also no appropriate hides for this species; they like narrow crevices (such as between flat pieces of rock or bark).

I had a Vaejovis sp. in a tank with cocofiber that I didn't let dry out completely, and it spent all its time hanging from the lid. When I switched out the substrate for some that was drier, it returned to hiding at ground level.

Uh . . . emps come from jungles, not deserts. I hope you're referring to the flatrock . . .

Ok noted, changing substrate when i can next, meaning to do it for ages anyway.

And yeah i know i had a massive rock for it to hide in and around but i had to change tank and unfortunatly remove it Sad

Yes, I was. Although the forests are more limited than that of the Asian Forest Scorpion. I have been working with one of the last remaining pairs of Barbary Lions from the forests of Northern African. Our brother and sister just had 3 cubs... I guess that is the best you can hope for.
