ive found a couple sites online, but it all looks too complicated...
not to mention one said that you should practice, and practicing on one dead scorpion is a little difficult...

its ok...
im ok with it now

im currently thinking of what i can get next...
i know i definitely want a b. jacksoni...
i know im probably gonna get another emp...

and i want a desert species for sure
i just dont know which one would be good for the conditions i keep my room

If you procrastinate maybe try freezing it until you get the time to do it. Sorry about your loss, that was a monster of a scorp!

Cover her in salt and stick her in an out of the way spot for a few weeks,that is what I did.It smells at first but it preserves the body very well.

if im honest it took me a while to get the courage to do mine lol i had it all set out ready n kept walking by it as the thought of scraping insides out made me feel sick pale but thought i can do this lol ...and did it wasnt a very nice thing to have to do but once your past the removing insides bit your fine Smile

thanks dude, cause im a bit lost on your explanation lol

bex - its not that im squeamish or anything like that, it just goes into a conversation me and binks had a long time ago...

i put my scorpions before most others in my life...
im careful to be sure there is nothing more i can do when i check their tanks 3x a day
i take better care of my scorps than i do myself lol

It is very simple put the scorp in a container that is open topped, add salt to tottally cover,waite until the smell goes away and the salt is dry.That is all there is too it.
