To be honest I'm surprised that you got a sub-adult because the pet stores don't normally know what they're talking about nor give you what you want, so that's good to hear.

The thing that you may want to do if you are ever planning on adding another emperor would be to confirm it's sex.
The pet store I'm assuming told you it was a male? but its always good to get a confirmation on here because as i mentioned earlier, the pet shops are often wrong. Smile

If, when you want to have it confirmed, just take a clear close-up pic if you can of the pectines (feather looking wing-like features under the scorpion) when it is in a plastic container or somewhere where you can get a clear shot.

The guy at the store seemed to know a good bit about them. They told me if you run out of crickets you can feed them raw ground turkey, is that true? Oh, and I was looking at the pectines on the car ride back and it looked like an oval shape and long feathers, but it was hard to tell.

Here's a couple of pics I got when he came out with the cricket:

K thanks... I've also heard instead of pill bugs you can put mealworm beetles into the tank to clean it... And I managed to get some pectine shots... Really hoping for a male! bounce

You have no idea how long it took me to get the scorp into the container.






Sorry they're blurry the camera was acting weird.

At first I thought definite male because it is very oval, but after looking at the other pictures I think I can see a "point" on the operculum indicating female.

I checked before we left the place and could've sworn it was a male... I'm bummed... Sad

Oh and I'm not bummed because he is actually a she, it's because I thought I had gotten the gender right, and that I had already came up with a male name...

My first female was called Odyssey. It means epic tale (pun and a play on words).

My male was also called Homer, as in Homer's Odyssey which is a tale in itself.

hmmmm ok, yea thought it was a wad of soaked paper towels... but a wide water dish is preferable, as they like to soak sometimes... it also helps them get rid of parasites and debris... no rush... take it easy.... Very Happy

I've decided to name her Dusk. The way she shines in the moonlight is beautiful and the name just seems to fit.
