that shop seariously needs someone to give a good talking to them!
I keep telling my "good" shop that the shop is too humid to have their "desert hairy" in a humid room without a heat lamp and in a cricket container and with a water bowl!
Some people never ever learn!

But...eugh I wish your friend had done some online reading before buying the two!

Be sure to smack him upside the head a few times and ask him what he was thinking.

It's unfortunate that many people don't do a lot of research when they get them. I had multiple scorps but read up on keeping them together, etc. Though i made a few mistakes on my emp's habitat in the beginning, i corrected it soon.

That's too bad. RIP to the little buggers.

The problem is when you go to pet shops and start telling them stuff about what they are doing wrong and stuff they look at you like you dont know anything about anything, like when i told a pet shop that the scorpion they was selling was illegal in Denmark. So they should take it off the shelf.. the dude keept saying it was a Hadogenes sp from madegascar when it was clearly a Hottentotta Very Happy i really dislike pet shops..

the only thing i dont understand about all this is how pt shops so often get away with misinforming people i mean does nobody actually do anything to check them, we have the rspca and i have reported a shop before and nothing was ever done about it, so i did it again and again and just kept getting told the shop was fine (the shop i reported had 12 hatchling pogona vitticeps in one small tank the thermometer said the temp was 75 degrees faranheit under basking spot waaaaaay to low for a beardie and they had no uv bulb) how is that FINE,

ps i hate pet shops with a passion, and yet i want to run my own lol

That's why I'm glad that I live in the US. It costs nothing extra to own any scorpion or invert and we don't have to go through the license crap Very Happy

But I do feel bad for you guys Neutral
