I was just wondering how small of a container can I keep an adult male emperor scorpion in? Thanks for the help.

I think the best solution would be a 10 gallon. Although I have seen people use 5 gallons for large specimens.

I have a round critter keeper that I'm going to put my gravid Emperor in very soon. It's measurements are 10.38 in x 5.5 in. Costs only $10. If you want I can show you a picture.

I Keep it in my closet. 60w infared bulb. Keeps it warm but not too toasty since she likes to bask a lot.

Half of a bark hide and a water dish.

A little size comparison if you're still unsure.


By the way Mako, just call me Patrick.

CactusHugger, if you have any more questions let me know. This isn't permanent by the way. I'm only putting her in their so she can have a nice quiet place to give birth. After that I'll keep her with the babies for about a month and a half before putting her back in the 10 gal. Then the babies will live in there until I get another tank.
