PostSubject: my first death.   4/28/2008, 2:42 pm

My Emperor kicked the bucket sometime this week Crying or Very sad
i dont know what happened...i came home for the sole purpose of taking care of her..and i lifted up the hide and there was my limp scorpion...my mother said she was doing fine before she left so i have no idea whats the c.o.d

(P.S yes i now the coconut bark isn't a good substrate...that's what i was coming home to change!)

Probably old age -- that happens a lot with wild-caught.

I'm sorry for your loss. Sad

That's a heck of a leap from an emperor -- you sure you're ready?

Her telson looks a little light in color, I'm not sure if she was that old. But it was more than likely wild caught and could of had internal parasites.

As far as the Andro thing is concerned, many people make a big deal over them. Just be smart and remember they CAN kill you. Some people have different rates at which they learn. I got my first Andro 3 or 4 months after I got my first scorp, but I knew I was ready. Now I have no comfort issues with medically significant species, but I always practice safety.
