PostSubject: So a few questions if you wouldnt mind.......   7/21/2011, 3:57 am

Ok so I've been doing a lot of research and I've came up with a few questions that no one really has the answer for (no one has explained it on the vast internet and it has me baffled scratch so I'm going to ask lol)

1. :venom: What is the best way to unpack a scorpion that was ordered online? [more venomous species (such as Parabuthus Transvaalicus, Androctonus Bicolor which are two I'm very interested in.)] I have seen one video but the scorpion was gravid and not moving at all. i am trying to as we all are avoid being stung by one of these beauties.


2. how should I go about containing them when cleaning the tank(changing substrate)? and what should i put them in?

3. I have an emp and im worried about his well being where I'm at summers are hot but we have had some freak heat and it wont subside his temperature has been up past 80'F even through the nights it barely goes below 79'F. ive put a fan up to him but that barely does a thing ive moved him to the floor in the corner of my living room(coolest area of the house) it seems to have done the trick for now but it is supposed to go past 100'F tomorrow (reported 110-117 heat index) so im a little nervous. pale That and my aunt has "asked" us to babysit her dog -.- I love the little guy but hes curious so I duck taped my emps lid shut so he cant get in and meet the most ill tempered emp ive ever seen. I even blocked it off but it makes it a higher risk factor other than him having to be kept on the floor. So what is a good way of lowering the temperature in situations like this (this is the first summer for him) and the thought of ice cubes has come across the mind lol but im sure theres a better way and I haven't figured it out yet.

with the more venomous species I know I don't have the experience to own one yet but im doing all the research I can and filling a spiral notebook with all the information I can about them and for owning them lol.

Thank you!
Tripp

with the hotter species..
just be extra careful and respect it.
try and get it in a cricket tub or a high sided tub so it won't climb up.

use big tongs and push it back into the tub.

just tip them out of the tub they come in.

open the paper towel with tongs of course. Put a cup over them when you clean. 80 degrees is nothing for an emp.
