 Got ma new emp!!!!!!!!!!!

haha as u can see i got my first ever emp and i am very very pleased wiith it but there seems to be what looks like a wound on his tail were the stinger attaches to the tail its like white and looks almost like cartalage does any one have a clue what im talking about??

oh and metz i absolutly dissagree with your no handling advis for emps anyways because i just got him home today about 3 hours ago and he is at tjis moment in my hand curld up and is not feeling one ounce threatend but every one has a different theory.

oh and one more thing befor i go i think he might be a red claw cause he is not somuch dark green or black he has sslightly redend claws.. but is none agressive any one know bout that stuf?

thanx

Well i haven’t been posting lately due to this and that but that bit you describe as a wound is where the joint is attaching the stinger to the tail (something else their to "BUT "I think , that is a smelly place and we wont go there As for the comment about handling them you will post on hear when eventually it does get pissed at this big hand coming into its home and disturbing it and does sting you or even worse it dies due to the unnecessary stressssss you will put it under (pleas do) Metz only ever hands out good advice your choice not to listen of course

Well you’re by all means entitled to disagree with me about handling...nothing wrong with that. My only question is...how did you type if you had it sitting in your hand "at this very moment"?

Emla and Fud (my two emps) say CONGRATS...EMPS RULE...WE’RE THE BEST...etc. etc.
Oh, and one more thing........






















PICTURES MAN....PICTURES!!! (if you have the means of course)

The description you used in your first post was wound and i just replied using your desciption of it.
As for my" but" response i think if you do some research you will find out that their buttocks are situated near this area hence the wording i used and the phrase smelly end fits
As for the handling thing if you think that lifting your scorp does not stress it then by all means do it .this is your choice as i did say previously
