So.. Here I am, getting my tank today, and wanting so feedback on stuff.
I joined this forum in hopes of learning a lot about scorpions before purchase. Been reading up on them for about a year.. but I have this fear that I'm gonna do something wrong.. mostly from my experience with rats as pets. before joining ratforum several years back, I can't believe how many unhealthy things I did to my poor babies with things as simple as bedding and food types. Don't want to make those kind of mistakes again.
I did read over the stickies posted here... But I wanted to get some personal insight from people who've had emperor scorpions before. What are things you wish you had known when you got your first scorpion?
Also another question I had... is it better to pick up an emperor scorpion form a local breeder if I can as opposed to a chain petstore like petco/petsmart? I've noticed a lot of rats already have illnesses when you get them from places like that, so if it's safer to get a scorpion elsewhere.. that'd be good to know!
