Maybe the scorp will eat it, itís funny cuz I have a garden snake and an emperor scorpion ( not in the sam cage of course) but Iím pretty sure the scorpion would eat it if not kill it at least.

Aside from that being a good way to lsoe a scoprion seeing as how WC animals can carry diseases and parasites, the chances are it would not eat it. Garder snakes give off a very foul musk that the scorpion would find none too pleasent.
You woud end up completly freaking out your scorpion and, even if the snake is a neonate, it is still too large of a "prey" item for the scorpion to be interested in.

It was a baby snake. But yeah, I was thinking that it might have had some disease or something. I never knew they give off a bad smell. You learn something new everyday.

I have garden snake, Iíve haded for about 5 years now it to be honest it doesnít really stink and it has never mucked me even though I handle it often, Iím not saying your wrong Metz but... Maybe itís a different kind of snake.

Very true. Garder snakes are just like any other snake, some will musk, some wonít, some will bite, some wonít. Iíve had garder snakes in the past (all WC) and some never musked me while others would musk every time the container was opened. It just depends on the particular snake.
