I never get tired of seeing my scorpions digging their burrows. I've also noticed that they will used their tails to help push themselves out of the burrow. Burrowing and feeding are two of the things I view as signs of your scorpion settling in and being healthy. What a mess she's made lol
Thanks for the quality vids and off topic, but that is one sweet signature!

I wish mine would burrow. She eats like a horse, and climbs like no other, but she's so content in her hide she never burrows. Not even a shallow groove.

She has a tight hide dug into a "hill" which she stays in on cold days (it's right near the heat lamp) and just a 1/4 log hide (wide open, not buried or even tight to the ground). I put it in as a last minute (will use to build a structure on to put a hide in) until she started living in this one 95% of the time.

She just sits in the middle. It's not dark, tight, protected, or warm, and has 2 huge openings. Just sits there loving it.

Oh well. She's happy and I can see her full body anytime I want. Good times I guess.
