Advertisement Hello every one!!!! My son found a Bark scorpion last summer while camping. He is a cute little guy. He has survived us taking care of him. He is never active, mostly hides under a some small bark chips, or his water dish. I have a 10 Gallon glass terrarium set up for him. about 2" of crushed coconut, a tank warmer pad, and that is how we have kept him. I have tried to keep his cage at 50-60% humidity. I mist every morning and then night. I keep a towel over the top of the tank to keep humidity in. once a week I buy a dozen small crickets and toss them in. after a week they are all gone. I have watched this guy a lot but he never seems to do any thing. I am sure he has eaten the crickets as where else would they go? Any way to keep this going, the other day I was in my local pet shop, and they had 2 labeled as dictator scorpions. The guy didn't know much about them, other than someone had brought them in and said he couldn't keep them any more. Supposedly they are a mated pair and the female is pregnant. I bought the pair for $40 and spent another $100 on stuff to keep them in. I have a 10 gallon glass terrarium, with about 2-3" of crushed coconut mixed with moss mixture. I also have a tank heater pad, I have it stabilized @80% humidity of course a small water dish, I stacked some flat rocks in so they had some place to hide. Now for the questions.... The pet shop sales guy said I needed to run nighttime heat lamps, to keep the cage at 80 degrees or better. He also sad I could run them 24 hrs a day as the scorpions cant see the red light. My cage has sat right around 75 degrees with the tank heater pad on, and room temp apartment. IS this to cold for them? Do I need to ad a night heat lamp? What would you do to get the temp up to >80? Is there an easy way to sex these guys? Is there an easy way to see if one is in fact pregnant? Is there a proper way to positively identify the difference between Dictator/ Emperor? I know a barrage of questions, but I have so many as I want to take care of these guys properly. I didn't care to much about the little bark guy, I expected it to die off, but he has kept well as I can tell, My son really has taken to keeping Mr. Tickles. These new guys are a whole new breed for me, and I want them to stay happy and healthy.
