That's a nice scorpion you have there! I don't know all too much about figuring out the age of a scorpion, but I believe that it is pretty young based on the color of its telson.

Nice pics,but is that woodchips what you are using for substrate? Itīs really not suitable for emps. I recommend you switch it to coco fiber.

+1

It is ideal to provide them with the option to burrow. 4-6 inch substrate depth nicely packed down is recommended.

Hmm...the Invert shop I was at recommended the cedar chips specifically. I try to provide him with plenty of hides and cover. Thanks for the heads up.

Cedar is toxic to most invertebrates, so get your scorp off that substrate ASAP. Most pet-store owners have no idea how to care for scorpions.

After checking, I misspoke. The substrate he's in is Cypress Mulch. Not Cedar. I had the bag hiding somewhere. It was recommended by the invert store clerk specifically, but I got the name wrong.

Okay. Some people do use cypress mulch in their tanks, but it does not allow for burrowing. You could put a thin layer of it on top of the main substrate (which should be 4-6 inches of either peat or coco fiber) to make the enclosure look more natural.

My votes for 5-6 inches of moist coco fiber


Not saying anyone is right or wrong, but trust the people on the site dedicated to them Razz


Ill save you a lot of trouble in the long run ; dont listen to everything a pet store worker says.
