Advertisement Help My Emperor gave birth yesterday, and again overnight. She now has about eight babies. And since this has happened, I've been doing some looking around at how to keep them alive. Well, I've found out that the Emperor lives in a climate with high humidity. On what now is clearly poor advice, I've been keeping my scorpion's cage filled with sand. The babies seem to be fine so far, but I don't know how long that will last. She's been hanging around the water dish, but I doubt that will do any good. I need advice ASAP on how I can fix this. I don't think I can move her out long enough to change out the sand without causing her and the babies a lot of stress. I was thinking perhaps that I could clean out the half she's not in and put the correct substrate in, though I don't know if she would go over there afterwards. Is there anything I can do?
