as mentioned i did go to the pet shop yesterday. i came back with a glass tank, substrate, a heating mat, digital thermometer, two cork logs, a water dish and nothing else. i went back to the pet shop today and came back with awesomeness. and some crickets.

me and scorpion arrive home

scorpion. poolside.

he’s a little boy (they double checked because i mentioned i might want another in the future), enjoys hiding under the smaller of the logs, might like eating crickets but i haven’t seen him eat yet, and prefers the cooler side of his crib.

i haven’t named him yet and have a couple of ideas, suggestions would be appreciated.

i was thinking: pinchy, stingmo, scorpion the cricket slayer, or your holiness.

if you’d like to know more about the scorpion, read the wiki page on emperor scorpions. or a caresheet on them from amateur entomologist.

and as an added bonus, this is the 301st post. thanks for reading.

cheers, emsworth aquaria and reptiles/wiki.
