Yeh, I have a male and a female Hadogenes Paucidens but I've never seen them bathe because I haven't got a bulb.

ohhh well i must say, its really nice. Most scorpions hide and you never see them, but since im using an in-fared bulb, he was out from his hiding place for more than 12 hours and i could view him. I must say, i enjoyed it very much.

i'd expect it's the heat...literally basking in a warm spot.
seeing as the scorp can't see the red light, it feels like it's a warm spot in the dark...must be a pretty happy little thing!

Lol yeah he seems pretty content. I love the fact that he doesn't really crawl at the glass like my others. Hes not persistent which is nice. He did however, stick his head in his water container for an amount of 5 minutes and drank. I was completely shocked. Ive had him for about 3 days since then and he hasn't drank so i'm not really worried about him. He hasn't been eating tho as the pet store told me so i'm going to wait till Friday and see if he is hungry or not.

+1. Scorps can't perceive red wavelengths, so he doesn't "see" the light -- just "feels" the warm.
