What kind of scorpion? Scorpions can go long periods without eating then eat a whole lot at one time

You shoulnít put many crickets in the tank with the scorpion at once as they could injure or just stress out your scorp. just put one cricket in there at a time so your scorp is not bothered while eating. Also donít leave the crickets in the tank for a long period of time especially a dead one or body parts as mites may form and could kill your scorp.

I would say yeah thatís too much on average emperors eat 3 to 4 medium or large crickets per week depending on the scorpionís size. I usually feed my scorps every two or three days. Be careful because it is easy to overfeed scorpions.
