Hi. I just got a flat rock scorpion. And just wondering how the humidity and temperature is suppose to be at . And how big do they have to be before they are allowed to eat pinkies ?
I have a red bulb right now instead of a heat mat. Is that okay ? Or should I used both or just one ?What species of flatrock did you get? I would consider it a desert species that hangs out in humid micro-environments along dry creek beds. imo it's a scorpion that deals with a wide humidity gradient, going deep into cracks where there is humidity and walking out into the drier air now and then. So if the terr is low humidity but substrate is a little moist in a corner with some flat rocks in there to hide between, it should do fine. They are pretty easy, just google flatrock setup or something like that. Upper 70'sF prob best and maybe an area that's a little warmer using a heat mat
I had it posted, then asked the mod to pull the thread. I want to build these hoods for people but I have some r&d to do yet, seems to work great so far..Oh geeze 55 gallon lol nice I take that back then..... haven't you shared the setup on here??? I think ive seen it?
UV is lethal to Scorpions. They do not need any lighting. You can use a normal infrared heat bulb if you want to view it at night, just make sure you don't use one that is too strong and desiccates the enclosure.Now do scorpionso needs uvb like nearded dragons do?
