I recently became a new owner of a Hottentotta caboverdensis and had some general questions. I have been misting his cage w/water but don't like the water marks on the glass. I've taken care of domestic spiders and wondered will soaking a cotton ball work w/scorpions as well? Also my species doesn't seem to active, even late at night. Could his nocturnal bioclock be on Cape Verde Islands time? It also got fed 4 days after a previous feeding and after coming home from work (less than 20 hours after introducing a cricket) the only result was a upside down cricket that never moved until it was touched, inspiring a freak out. What happened? Haha. Thanks to all who answer.
