    Hey guys, I just want some ideas as to the setup of my Flinders ranges scorpion, I've got him on a false bottom setup with a 50:50 coco peat and red desert sand setup at the moment.
    The hide I have is definitely to big so I want to put some flat rocks in there for him to burrow any ideas on to how to securely put rocks in an enclosure.
    Thanks guys

    Late reply, hopefully still helpful. For rocks in my U. elongatus enclosure I use quite wide, very flat rocks. This way any burrowing and or a scrape shouldn't excavate enough to cause the rock to fall. If it does, my theory is that a wider rock will still be somewhat supported in at least a couple of sides, and won't completely fill in the scrape. Remember these guys manage in the wild without secured rocks, and can mostly get themselves out of trouble by digging, even in the case of a cave in.
