So I am in a bind as this is not my scorpion I am needing advice on. I work in an environment where arthropods are educational pieces that need to be seen by the public and therefore their comfort is not really taken into consideration. My boss recently bought corn cob animal bedding and asked me to put a few of our arthropods on it, one of which is our asian forest scorpion. When I brought up the fact that it would probably mold when I watered it she said try it.....two days later there was mold. When I told her this she said not to water it anymore (it does have a water dish). Are there any good light colored substrates I can bring up to her to use because I feel really bad that it has nothing to hide under, no way of burrowing, and now no damp substrate to even sit on plus it has to sit under a light six plus hours a day. Any suggestions?
