I made a quick video on my emps, I caught a wolf spider in my house decided to feed it to my emps. After the wolf spider saw the claws of the scorpions, he stopped moving, this continued for about 15 minutes before the scorpion finally decided to attack. I cut out this period of stalemate. The quality isn't great since I was filming behind glass(didn't want to disturb them), for more info, check the descriptions. Hope you guys enjoy!

Nice vid, I really enjoy watching my emps hunt. Their reaction time is insanely fast.
I also notice that often times my emp will "freeze" when the prey item stops moving. They're almost at a stand-still in which the next move of the prey will determine if it lives or dies lol

but its just because i dont want the spider anywhere near me, and im not touching or messing with a spider that is as big as my emps lol

So i have a question I'm itching to ask. I have a heating mat under the cage directly beneath my rock. IT dries up the substrate really fast and it becomes crumbly and yellow. Pouring water only works temporarily and I have to move the rock and disturb the scorps when I do that. I've heard that u can put the mat on the side, is that a good idea? I live in Seattle so the weather is pretty cold for emps and a heating pad is very important. Any and all suggestions are welcomed! btw I use coco fiber as my substrate.

Yes, putting the mat on the side is the best idea. It can actually be harmful placing it on the bottom. If it gets too cold and the heat mat doesn't provide enough heat, you can also supplement it by getting a heat lamp with an infrared heat bulb. Some people use heat emitters too.
