Depending on how many babies my emperor scorpion has, I may have some to give away to people on here.
Note: Please be experienced in taking care of scorpions/arachnids in general; at the very least, please read up and understand the kind of maintenance they require. You can’t just put them in any old environment and expect them to be comfortable. Likewise, I wouldn’t want anyone asking for them “just because they’re cool”/for the novelty factor.
With that out of the way,
My female emperor scorpion is having babies right now as I type this. I currently don’t know how many she’ll have but a safe guess is 12-20.
If you want one, I could mail you one. If you live in the Chicago area, you could drive by and pick one up. $20 for a baby but I’m willing to go lower if you live closer/or are a friend.
Reblog this if you know anyone that may want one…? I guess..? If you want one yourself send me an ask, but my asks are kinda fucked up rn so I may not get it, more reliable if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
info on emperor scorpions just incase:
**(also, i recommend heating pads that attach to the sides or bottom of the tank instead of a heat lamp if you live in a dry area, as the heat lamp could dry your scorpion out intensely) (also, try not to use tweezers upon picking your scorpion up, and make sure if you use tongs that they’re padded at the ends)
going to reblog this because as of right now i assume she has at least 10 or more. so i definitely need to find people who want any.
I want but but I live in Canada :(((((((((((( urg
Anonymous said: I hear all these rules about how to tell the difference between alligators and crocodiles and apparently there is actually no clear way of doing so? Can you please shed some light on this D: I'm confused
The rules for distinguishing between alligators and crocodiles are not very helpful in most of the world, because in most of the world either (a) no crocodilians are present, (b) only crocodiles or only alligators are present, and you should not need to tell the difference between anything, or (c) whether or not it’s a croc or an alligator doesn’t matter, you still shouldn’t be anywhere near it. (also caiman and dwarf crocodiles confuse things a bit)
That being said, to the best of my knowledge, most of the rules are in fact true. The tooth thing, the head shape thing, etc. The important thing to remember is that alligators are stub-faced chubby bunnylizards, whereas crocodiles are snaggletooth goober-monsters.
