i was wondering if desert scorpions could be kept at room temp such and desert hairy and dune scorpions
Heat mats are OK for scorps but only on the side of the enclosure NEVER underneath the enclosure. Tarantulas usually don't need it that hot. I usually go with if im comfortable then my Ts probably are too when it comes to tempsDoesn't it get frigid in the desert at night? And why are scorpions okay with heat mats while tarantulas aren't?
Not necessarily. It doesn't get "frigid" except for maybe december-febuary in the dead of night. There is a BIG temperature difference between day and night in the desert, But considering when its 110 degrees in the day, and it makes a 30 degree drop at night, that's still 80 degrees, which is warm/smoldering hot for most other people/places in the world.Doesn't it get frigid in the desert at night?
