I took 3 deli cups with I2 P imps outside to show a friend who was coming over to my house... well it was about 90 outside, but inside the sealed cups that were in direct sunlight for 20 minutes or so it was well over 100... so when I opened them up I saw little rigor mortis corpses in the stilting position all over... lesson learned but I was Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I let some C. hentzi get too dry . . . lost one gravid female and one brood that way. Sad

I think I lost a B. jacksoni from it getting to dry during a molt, too.

i can tell you that i have two scorps with dents and they are doing fine. one H.h. with birth deformation is molting properly and feeding too. other marure female L.mucronatus is even pregnant. she has masive dents on metasomal segments and telson. she acts normal.

remember the dying scorpions? that's the thread he's reffering to.

Liette, they very possibly could have been dead and the display that you witnessed in your replacements is not what your fist batch were doing. don't feel bad.

I got stung once and I had a scorp dessicate - I guess I've been a good keeper

oh thats good to know then! I hope the little one can moult but as yours has with dent then im sure my little damaged one will do fine. I do still have my "telsonless two" teeny and tiny who are feeding well *birth defect*

My first mistake was assuming emperors liked sand. Wrong terrarium setups, etc...

I had an excellent setup for my P. Boreus when I got him but that was luck. Thankfully I found the scorpion boards at the arachno boards and then found "IHeartMantids" who helped me a TON and then pointed me here and I'm learning more and more every day. It's feeding my fascination with these creatures all the time! Fun!

No way you can get into this hobby and not make some mistakes, it is part of the learning process. It gets better with time.

1. Mistook the Emp for a desert species...
2. Kept black light on for long periods of time b/c I thought it looked cool.
3. Put a mouse in.
4. Dropped the hide on my Emp by accident.

errrrr..

Housed a I4 Cavimanus with a I3 Imperator...

Hey.... the petstore said it was fine (we really need that head going into wall from the AB emoticons)

8 days later (about two days after I recieved information on AB that this was a bad idea)... Rabbit was eaten by Tenacious. Atleast I got some good pictures.

accidentally dropping a piece of flat concrete that I was using for my H.Paucidens' enclosure on the scorpion itself. it survived with no damage, but I was so shaken up from doing that. the sand on the concrete made it slip out of my hands while I was removing it from the enclosure.

Didn't learn enough about matured crickets and put a female in with my lazy emp.. He / she eats like once every 3 weeks and not long after the cricket had been put in there I had lots of tiny little baby crickets
