i meant post a pic of the cage. that humidity is to low, put some suran wrap over half the cage and maybe add a live plant to help keep humidity up.

Oh goodness Joe, you really need to learn how to care for scorpions. Foggers are NOT good for scorpions. Take that stupid thing out and set up the container properly so the scorpion gets the right amount of humidity. Oh and BTW, for a scorpion that small, your tank is WAY too big. Hand feeding.....are you trying to impress us or are you just so full of it that your eyes are brown.
Sorry man, but I have very little patience for ignorance and arrogence mixed with a load of BS any more.
Learn about how to PROPERLY care for scorpions....for the scorpionís sake.

Actually what I said was that I have no patience for ignorance and arrogance and Iím that way all the time.
Joe, the reason that I jumped on you is because you have shown no effort whatsoever to learn how to properly care for your scorpion and you have had it for a while. The only time you post is when you are showing off or bragging about some less than smart thing you are doing with your scorpion and you give "advice" and "suggestions" based on that ignorance and lack of knowledge and respect for invertebrates.
Buying an animal or accessories at a pet store is *not* an excuse for ignorance and lack of education about what is appropriate for a particular animal. In additon, the vast majority of pet store employees are completely clueless as to how to *properly* care for exotic animals of any sort. If that were the case then I would know nothing about one of my G. rosea and Avicularia that I have because I got them from a pet store and they would all be swimming in a salt water tank with sunken sail boats and basking lights. As well, I would be going around telling everyone that G. rosea are "viscious" and "deadly" because *that* my dear boy, is what the "educated" pet store employee told me when I bought my G. rosea. LMAO
Knowledge is power and can provide your animals with a happy, healthy life. The lack of knowledge can result in a shortened life span due to improper conditions and a stressed out animal.

I canít do that because you hardly ever post and when you do, you do not *ask* if you are doing things right, all you do is brag about silly things that will further the ignorance of new keepers who will think it is ok to handle scorpions, hand feed them and use foggers for humidity.
If you *ask* then we can tell you and you will learn, otherwise, our hands are tied because we can not read your mind and are left with only correcting your statements, suggestions and advice so others are not misguided and given wrong advice.

dude, the best way to keep humidity in a tank that is also easy on the pocket, is to like you were told put something over top of half of your tank...a ten gallon is more than adequte for one red claw, and then go the fish store and buy yourself a SMALL!!!fish tank heater...one that will fit in a big glass mug...fill that big mug with water, and ALWAYS keep it full(or the heater will shatter), plug it in and you will have perfect measured humidity, it has worked perfectly for me several times, then all you do is adjust the temp on the heater accordingly...fog on the glass is too much and so on. i swear by this method as do several of my friends trust me, as long as you adjust it, and keep it full of water you will be laughing...BE WARNED scorpions can climb to a small extent..i HIGHLY reccomend a piece of screen over the top of the mug to avoid an accidental drowning if i can find some pics of one set up i will post it for you...good luck

the temps are fine and it is not recommended to pic up a scorp because it is extremely stressful on them. imagine you were picked up by something 5,456,423,456,464x your size.
