    i know the old rocks were a no no for everything but snakes maybe , but these new rocks are made a little different these days.. i know im gona get some slack for this post butttt here it goes copy paste from site///

    Zoo Meds Repticare® Rock Heaters are made of a hydrated rock material that is twice as strong as cement or pumice, resulting in excellent conductivity and increased product longevity. Hot spots are not a problem with a completely encapsulated full coverage nichrome heating element that distributes heat evenly. Zoo Meds Deluxe Repticare® Rock Heater features a rheostat control allowing you the ability to adjust the surface temperature

    When more expensive than an ordinary lightbulb, bad idea imo......
  3. It is not usually recommended, as the rock can simply become too hot.

    Heat tapes, light bulbs, and heating the entire room are the most practical methods, but each have their drawbacks...

    Stick to IR or ceramic heat lamps. They provide radiant heat from above, just like the sun.
    I don't know of any scorpion that needs or has use for a hot rock. Scorpions are not reptiles.
