If they cant burrow it will cause a huge amount of stress and that can in some cases be fatal.hmm. its like an inch of hamster substrate to keep moisture in, on top of marbles rocks and stuff. im spraying about 2 or 3 times a day. yeah the pictures look really bad, but from the side he looks clearish and like a molt shell really.. anyone ever seen them get like this before? im really worried when i poke at him he barely moves. hes not trying to hide very well in the past few days, hell come out and sit around all day. was thinking maybe somebody could verify if hes trying to molt by looking at the distance between the lines on his back and color shade. ill get on that peat asap. and get rid of that hamster crap. didnt think it would be that big of a deal to him
Agreed! Please get that emp on at least 4-5 inches of DAMP coco fiber or peat. These are forest/humidity-critical species that love to burrow. I'm certain he'll do much better in a revised setup. Keep us posted.If they cant burrow it will cause a huge amount of stress and that can in some cases be fatal.
Why on this earth did you put an inch of hamster substrate when they actually need 15-20cm of substate like peat or coco hummus??? Have you read any caresheets at all?
Sad thing, but you can always start all over if you like scorpions. I would like top recomend you Heterometrus spp. witch are big asian forrest scorpions similar care to Pandinus imperator. I you want to try dryer habitat you have the Hadogenes spp. or perhaps Mesobuthus martensii (Venom 3/5)yeah he's dead now. neighbor called and said hes dead before i could even get home and change it
