I set up my 30x30 exo-terra tank with heating pad on the outside bottom,added the sand it came with and a couple inches of moss,i then added the water dish and a hallowed out rock.for light a put a purple 25 wt moonlight,its sittin at about 80 degrees f.I bought an emp scorpion yesterday with the crickets and its food. My question is , hes been hiding under the hallowed out rock all night and most of the day, is this normal adaptation ?

It is normal for them to hide for the majority of the time they are known as "pet holes" they will spend mosttime in burrows and under hides

but I must point out you have your scorpion on the wrong substrate emps should be kept on cocoa fiber/ peat deffinatly not sand and moss! and it should be 4-6 inches deep also you shouldn't put your heat matt under the tank it should be outside on the one of the sides, scorps burrow to escape heat,

Hi gcole4433, first.. Welcome to the forum!
I agree with bex's advice on the required changes and their hiding behavior. There's a good Emperor Scorpion's FAQ thread on this forum, check it out if you haven't Smile
