A few days ago we found my emperor scorpion, King Henry, dead in the tank... Sad
he was my first one I got for a present so i want to preserve him and keep for as long as possible, any recommended best methods or where i can get materials and instructions on how to do it?

thank you I'll be sure to post how it goes and some pics.

Any idea how the scorpion might have died? I had him in with a female and she is still alive... the room was a bit cold but I read that they can live in lower temps and without food for sometime i dont understand how one lived and the other didnt in the same conditions... could she have killed him? they were getting along for months

If it was adult it was probably just older than your female and died of old age.
