I got a new emperor scorpion a month or so ago and I decided to clean his cage out yesterday. Given how easily I am distracted I cleaned it out, replaced the scorp and left the cage outside. I ended up going to bed and got up and left for work in the morning forgetting about the cage. It crossed my mind about 12 in the afternoon what I had done, and all I could think about was the summer sun and how hot the terrarium would get. I knew he would be baked by the time I got home, and of course he was all sprawled out on the side of the cage dead from my negligence. I hate it when you're pissed off at yourself... it's so much easier to be pissed at someone else.
