My husband won a scorpion & brought it home. It creeps me out & I have named it Nope, but that being said I generally love animals & so I'd like Nope to have the best possible environment in his tank.

I'm interested in knowing what kind of live plants are good for a scorpion tank (and good for his crickets as well). Also, if your scorpions prefer prey other than crickets. I prefer cats & dogs, so I know zip about little creepies.

I never had a scorpion, but a tarantula. I had what I think is called reptile bark. I think they requirre similar care.

Maybe Petco has one of those little care pamphlets on them.

Nope looks huge! What kind of scorpion is it? I'm of no help as I'm a desert dweller and anytime I see bark scorpions they are smashed on the spot! Bump for you

African Red Claw? Not venomous, from what I understand. I've been told his pinch is actually worse than his sting would be. No plans on testing that. Don't blame you for the bark scorpions though. I'd be stomping them too.

I’d ask for the runner up prize. Lol

We had sun scorpions in our house. That was enough for me.

I think the first two winners got scorpions, DH just got to pick which one he wanted first. I can't remember what the other was, but I think Nope is the more territorial one. I know we can't get him a friend, because they might get cannibalistic.

I'd have preferred a puppy 😂
