Hi, I recently went to the Sea Wall to collect some scorpions (with spinnin_tom XD), and I brought one home. Currently in a 15l tank with soil as the substrate and some rocks for hiding, sticks, leaves, etc. I have been putting woodlice in for it to eat, but it hasn't touched them as far as I am aware. It has been 4 days, and no sign of feeding. Should I be worried? As you have probably noticed by my question I am completely new to keeping scorpions in captivity, so please can I get some help? Smile

Hello and welcome.

Scorpions won't usually eat woodlice (Isopods) and in fact they get used as tanks cleaners because they get ignored by the scorps and left to clean leftovers and stuff from the tank. Leave a few in there if you want but your going to need to go to the pet shop or somewhere to get some small crickets.

These scorpions can go a whole year on one feed I read somewhere, well most scorpions go months without food it's nothing to worry about at all Smile

when we found them, we managed to coax one out with a woodlouse, it ate that, one would think after years of living with woodlouse, they would eat them?

Found this bit I copied out of a report:
They eat other invertebrates such as woodlice and spiders. For most of the year they are inactive as it is too cold, they will be lying dormant in those cracks and crevices, but it is just about warm enough in the south of the country for them to survive.
