I didn`t know whether to laugh or cry when I saw this lol But grab my camera I certainly did. This poor doomed locust looks like he`s in jail Sad lol Ooooh man, talk about making me feel guilty! lol!



By the way, my scorpion didn`t seem very interested in eating. Should I be taking the locust out incase it tries anything on with her? Also, will the scorpion hunt and catch the food item or do you normally tong feed?

Normally they always catch and kill their own prey but some can tong feed. Dont worry theres nothing wrong with her scorpions are known to fast at times some reason i think your one might just be familiarising herself to the new enclosure and settling in, you can take the locust out because they can bite back and try again in a day or 2

haha, nice pic Smile
You might have to assist your scorpion in catching these hoppers if they jump around too much. They might be a pain because they hang onto the enclosure's ceiling which is what happened to me.

Haha. Just don't do what I did when I started to tong feed.

The scorp went for the tongs so fast I jumped, which scared the scorp so he jumped, which made me jump again.

He hid in his burrow for 2 days before eating again.

I`m so used to dealing with rear fang venomous and angry snakes lol I stopped jumping years ago! One of my six foot Carpet pythons bit me a couple of days ago, I saw that comng but just kept still to spare myself unecessary extra damage and tooth loss for her. Jumping isn`t a problem Smile

Fair enough. I jump at everything. I've raised snakes, dogs, monitors, etc, and I still jump.

Heck, I jump when the doorbell catches me off guard or I wake up to fast. Little jealous of your skills.

In my line of work an unsteady hand can cost a load of money.....

What`s the brood size for these guys anyway ? I read it was twelve or so, is that right? I want to be ready if she does give birth. Cor I hope she does ! That`d be great! Smile

I truly hope your a surgeon and not a hitman.

Either way, pretty cool.

You're looking between 10-12 usually. But you haven't said which scorp you're brooding on. Pun intended. I'm assuming Emp. based on your other post.

Yeah soz, an Emperor scorpion, that`s the only scorpion I have until I find her a suitable mate.
Nope, I`m not a hitman lol or a surgeon, I think the persons life might be the worry there and not money! lol I`m a Goldsmith Smile
She`s not interested in eating at all. I offered a locust on the tongs and she was very underwhelmed. I`ll try every few days I suppose... Smile
I don`t suppose anyone could comment on roughly how far into her pregnancy she might be looking at her?
