So one of my emps (my female) sometimes comes out of her hide during the middle of the day and just sit there under the warm lamp and will bask for 30 minutes to a couple hours. But here's the problem, I have an east facing window in my room that so it lets a good amount of light in. And if she is basking during the middle of the day near the window, wouldn't that be detrimental to her health? Wouldn't it be bad for any scorpion?

Also,

She hasn't been sharing hides with her tank mates. She's always in a different one.

I would speculate that she could be gravid. That will make females act more brave as they try to get a bit extra heat into the embryos.

My "big mama" does this all the time and drinks a lot of water. She's fat... really fat. I just don't know when she's going to pop.

It's nothing to worry about. Just be ready to receive a litter! Smile

WHOOO!

Funny you mention it, its 4:30 in California now, the suns still pretty up, and she's been walking around the tank since noon! And she tried to drink twice earlier.

So good news yeah? Better look up one of GS's "planned parenthood" caresheets.
