emperor scorps arent agressive generaly but that veries from specimen to specimen feed babies pinhead crickets and adults any thing smaller than its pedipalps combined lifespan 4-6 years handling its a must when cleaning its terreum *cant spell* if you can just put your hand in front of its body and tickel its under side it should crawl onto your body and when it does your its new subtrait and ya dont see many scorpions stinging the floor do ya and uvs r ok they dont causs stress and they dont dirupt the sleep cycle of your scorp housing 10 gallon for its whole life with a little "den" for it to hide under like a piece of sturdy shale you can use vermiculite for subsrtate
breeding you need at least a 40 gallon tank for this one and a flat peice of shale right in the front of you females den so they can dance it will last for minutes or hours it depends its a 12 month gestation peroid and she will birth up to 15 babies theyll ride on her back and shell let them but after thier first shead she will kick em off and then you remove them because the are fair game for food now i have no clues when they reach sexual maturaty
hope that helps and email me with any further questions blackdragon38834@aol.com
