I was only able to get four. They sold a bunch at a show this weekend I guess so I grabbed up all the rest. Looks like I need to build a smaller tank for them in the meanwhile since four might get lost in a 30"x12" ha ha... I'm going to try to post some pictures up a bit later today of the tank I made so keep on the lookout! Any comments will be much appreciated.

I saw the pics you posted of yours, and they look great!

Some Post-mortem pics:







If you look at the first picture, it seems that one of the pectines is damaged.

Thanks man. He's now staying in the freezer until I figure out what to do with him.
Don't know if to put him in a jar filled with alcohol, or if to give a shot at taxidermy. Bex's looked pretty cool after she did it.

Yea Bex done a good write up on it somewhere, I'd probably use that method for bigger scorps like this and the alcohol for small scorps, I've never actually done it though.

I guess I'll pass by my vet later to see if she can get me a diposable scalpel for the job Smile
I used alcohol for one of my scorplings, it worked ok, but probably an adult emp would smell even through the alcohol.

i just used a very sharp knife and it was quite tough to break the skin, a scalpel would be much better Smile also i used hairspray on mine but i would recomend you use something stronger like a clear lacquer spray as the hairspray didnt hold to well in the end and had to use lacquer spray on top Smile

Thanks for the tip on the lacquer. I could try out and get lacquer or acrylic clearcoat and spray it with the airbrush.
