Is it just me or is male Emp gettin HUGE? he's eatin 6-8 crickets ( Im talkin big ones ) a week! And his sides arent even beginning to expand at all ! This guy loves to come out around midnight and actually stands in the corner of his tank UNTIL I pick him up. Then he sits on my hand docile as can be. He's pinched me maybe once or twice in a year but Im guessing that's til I give in and HAND feed him a cricket. I actually get a cricket and put it in his pincher. I was sooo freaked about even thinking of touching him for months. Then one day I was like .. I want to respect this guys space .. but on the other hand I want to see what he'd do If I just rested my hand under him and let him decide if he wanted to be messed with! Then we walked on my hand and the rest is history. I don't recommend handling Scops in any way ( due to stressin them out , them falling or even getting stung ) But fearing such an amazing creature is far worse. Anyone newbie that wants any help info whatever .. email me I have 3 scorps 2 Emps and an Israli Gold ( Scorpio Maurus ) and 6 dart Frogs which I just got into 3 weeks ago .. wanna talk time and dedictation .. but thats another story .. by the way Thanx Dave , Kugellager and kenny for all the help and INFO.. Keep it UP Dave I see from all your posts your into your Hobbies ( work ) !!
