What use had they for tricks and cunning, living in the enemy's warren and paying his price?

The babies. They ignored the eggs.

I wouldn't buy online from any big reptile wholesaler. They just flip animals for profit. IMO they really aren't much better than buying a herp from a pet store. (Where do you think the pet store gets their stock from?)

It's always best to buy direct from a breeder. Reptile shows are great for this. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, most of the reptile shows have been cancelled. I got an email from Repticon that they're starting back up (in Florida at least, not sure where else) but with the risk and all major restrictions they have planned with limited entry and closing every 2 hours for vendors to disinfect their booths, I'm not sure how many people still plan to attend.

Have you looked at MorphMarket? https://www.morphmarket.com/us/c/re...r-lizards/index

The emerald scales kid occasionally gets tegus but idk that Iíd ever buy from him...





They are rescues/rehomes, tho, which is ethically nice. But Iíd second the breeder/show route for sure. You can also find breeders online and research them/get in touch that way. People are looking to find buyers for their animals now that this seasonís shows have been cancelled

Not a pet but I have a new garden buddy. Looks like he just ate.

Hopefully he can help me keep the chipmunk population in check, or at least away from my plants.

your better off waiting and going to a con or a small/weird pet shop rather than online shops.

Welp. This feeding has been....productive so far.

My tongs are both too short and too firm for the kind of feeding I was hoping to do, which is fine because I just dropped a mealworm into the temp Kritter Keeper enclosure I put the scorp in for feeding and it didnít even take ten seconds for the scorpion to have the mealwormís rear end end in its mouth.

Now itís been about 15 minutes and the mealwormís tired of flailing but still very much alive and the scorpionís just been sitting there holding it in its first jaws like a macabre agonized doobie

Maybe it feels threatened/cold? Iíll give it some space and put a heat mat under it.





apologies for the free GIF app watermark

Update: heat pad seems appreciated, scorpís just about finished eating the whole worm. Gonna try a second in a bit.
