PostSubject: A death:(   6/9/2010, 8:48 am

i woke up the other morning and my flat rock was out, it was strange because he never used to come out unless there was food( but i never saw him eat once) his movement was really slow and sluggish:( so i raised the tempereture and put more water in than usual and when i came back about 4 hours later he had died:( any suggestions to how he died
thanks

added water? flat rocks dont like humidity, or do you mean to the water dish - they are rarely seen anyway - what temp did you push it up to - its usually females that stay hidden whereas males will sonmetimes appear in search of a mate

I second that! They are amoung the SLOOOOWEEST growing scorpions. I would wager a bet that he was already a few years old when you purchased him.
