PostSubject: temporary housing   7/25/2010, 11:17 am

Im visiting family right now and last night I bought an emperor at the local petshop. Everything I need for it is at home 9hrs away in Michigan, which means I have no heat lamp or heat pad with me. Where Im at currently, Tennessee, the temps inside the house have been in the mid 80s as well as the humidity. I know what I have the emp in is fine but its on only a few inches of a mixture of peatmoss, coco fibers, and few other things with a small water dish but no hide. My question is, from the little bit of info I was able to give, should my emp be fine for a couple more days until I return home? And should it be fine in a 9hr car ride home? Any answers are greatly appreciated.

Well considering Im going back home in a couple days, where I have everything I need and then some, I dont really want to spend the money on one here. So what I was trying to ask is should it be fine for a couple more days until I can get it everything it needs? It along with many others where kept in horrible conditions at the pet store, bark substrate, no hide, and very low humidity, so I assume what I have it in now must be much more comfortable that what it was in.

if you absolutely wanna avoid stress at all costs id get or make some kind of cheap hide that way itll feel somewhat safer and more relaxed =)

It should be fine.

You don't need to buy a hide, just make one - anything that works will do. A small plant pot or something will do.

i know you will be home now but for future reference bits of card or scrunched up paper of even a smashed brick works really well

I also live in the god awful tundra wasteland of Michigan. When I went to my hometown for a couple of days here is what I did to fight the cold (I live in a college town house where we don't use heat). I used a space heater to keep the room temp up, and the heater has a fail safe if it gets too hot, and kept the room at a constant 80 degrees. The other thing I did was put my heat lamp on a timer set to turn it on for 14 hours and shut off for 10 hours during the night. Those kept my scorp warm for the four days i was gone.
