My Pet Scorpion

So, I have a pet Scorpion. Actually, its my SO's, I bought it for him for his birthday a few weeks ago. Anyways, the pet shop said that just a heating pad outside of the tank (like underneath of it) would be sufficient heat. Well, it didn't seem to be heating very well from the bottom, so now I have it (the heating pad) on the side of the tank, but the Scorpion is still being very docile.

So I guess my question is, is it OK to get a heating lamp?

  • I'd look into the heat rocks instead of the lamp. The rocks, they crawl up on if cold and then can get off if too warm. The lamps just kinda heat it all up.
