PostSubject: question about scorplings   1/1/2011, 5:50 pm

ive got 2 vaejovis scorplings and thier separated into 2 1.5 inch pots the scorps are about 7 mm in size. Im just wondering is thi big enough and has anyone got any tips because i get a bit worried about how vulnurable they are because of thier size and i cant tell if theyve eaten or not.
Cheers

That small of a container for that size of a scorp should be OK. Give them a chunk of egg carton or cardboard to hide under.

In that small of a container, it also ought to be easy to tell if they've eaten or not (i.e., the prey won't be hard to find if they haven't eaten).

I also suggest misting half the cup every couple of days. In my experience, scorpions that small are prone to dessication.

My wife has fed cricket "drumsticks" to baby tarantulas, so possibly.

is what ive done is taken some very young pupa from my meal worm farm and put those in there with them, i think its the easiest way to do it if they wont eat dead stuff, they dont eat so theres no danger of them eating the scorp and the dont move very often, and it would be easy to see if the scorps have tried eating it. just out of interest how much will scorps that size eat?

It works very well, but in my experience that feeding method didn't last very long. At about 3i they stopped going after the limbs/prekilled prey. At first I thought they weren't hungry, but when I threw in a small roach, they jumped all over it and fed again.
