 Wow i just realized that i could probley get a scorp! o.O

ok, i always thought that scorpions were high manteniacne pets. (idk why i gess cuz their just so exotic). and i thought they were really expensive too. well, i went to the pet stor teh other day and they have a breeding pair for sale for fifteen dollars. so i got interested then lol. so i came home and started researching, and i found out that their fairly easy lol. thats freaking awesome! but i do have some questions before i buy one.

i know that they arnt handleable animals and they stress very easily from it, but wehn im cleaning out its tank, is it ok to handle it jsut to transfer it to a holding space? also if it does sting how bad is it? a trip to the emergency room or just alot of pain and ice?

are they really active (be it night or day)? or are they like my snake, who goes and hides after i feed him and i dont see him for the rest of the week?

also for a full grown scorp, is a twenty gallon good?

Hi,
So, You surf the forums, too, eh? LOL. The answers to your questions depend on what type Scorpion we`re talking about.

Of course, You have move them to clean the tank. Just be gentle.

Some one who has been stung may want to answer this. I haven`t. From all I`ve read, an Emperor sting is like a mild bee sting. NP unless You happen to be allergic. Now, some other Scorpions can deliver a "whallop" of a sting.

Emperors are active at night and more so when it`s quiet. They explore their tanks quite a bit. But, I`ve noticed mine hide for several days when shedding.

10 gallon is big enough for a grown Emp. So, In a 20 gal. long, You could keep a couple of them. Still interested? Pick a Baby...LOL

Hi,
I didn`t get anything...Did You spell my email correctly? Yours is not showing up. You have to seperate it so that it doesn`t look like an email address. You can also PM me on here. Rayna :-)
