Okay. . .
I'm skeptical but I'm willing to keep an open mind.

I'll make a new thread anywho, will not make this confusing anymore.. Please close this thread asap. xD Thanks.

On this forum, we try to avoid posting multiple threads on the same topic. It simply makes it easier to keep track of all the questions and answers.

I will answer your questions on your other thread, but it will most likely get moved to this one.

Good to know. It also shows that you've done some research.

I'm guessing that somebody has encountered it before, attacking it with something because of fear, it lost 2 legs. I can't really say if it was removed or anything since it looks like it's incomplete. The two legs are next to each other. It looks incomplete, is this an in-born sickness?
Okay, which legs? Did it loose the entire legs, or just part of it? Pictures would be helpful.

Quote :
I can't find coco fiber anywhere, are there anything that an emp would like besides coconut fiber for its land?
Why coco fiber anyway?
Coco fiber is used mainly because it holds moisture well, and when compressed is stable enough for burrowing.


Quote :
PS: I actually don't have a tank yet, I'm keeping it in a quite-big container with sand/mud in it? AM I DOIN IT RITE?
I think it actually likes it. I put some obstacles like a tree bark (circle shaped) for it to burrow.
It doesn't sound too bad, although, the substrates doesn't sound optimal. But then again, pictures speak a thousand words on this sort of thing. I'd say it should be fine as a temporary tank.

Your Emp is definitely missing the lower half of a couple of legs. I can't tell how old the injury is, but if there's no fluid leaking from the wounds, your scorpion should survive.

Your substrate looks dry and rocky. Below is a link to a video of Emperor scorpions being collected in Togo. It'll give you an idea of the type of terrain in which Emperors dig their burrows. The narration is in German, but you can turn on English subtitles.

Edit: I should add that Emperors are also found in rain forest and jungle like habitats, as well as, the (savanna?) habitat featured in the video.

Great video shebeen makes me re think my all co co fiber and cork enclosure.

And a big + 1 to all you guys who are sticking with this discussion and being patient. We truly are the best forum on the web. I don't include myself in that as I've lost completely, especially with that Houdini edit of the first post. Just wow.

I'm just wondering what kind of black scorpion they have here that kills people with their stings.

From my experience stories such as those are so exaggerated in Africa. Over here it is said that if a black mamba bites you, you will die with 20-30 min even though no cases like these have ever been documented and black mamba venom takes more than 2 hours to kill a person. The same stupid stories are applied to scorpions here as well. People think a Parabuthus transvaalicus can kill you in a matter of minutes.
Back to the question though. The only very dangerous black scorpion I can think of is Androctonus bicolor but they occur in Libya and not Liberia.

As Liberia is a coastal country with a more wet and humid environment it can be said that all the people only saw Emperors and no highly dangerous scorpions. Just my opinion though.

Some emps do have dark/black telsons. Your scorp is definitely a Pandinus imperator.
