    I did something stupid today. My giant desert hairy scorpion has been MIA for a month and a half. I know they stay in their burrows for long periods at a time. I got impatient and worried and dug up half of the burrows just to find him safe and sound. But quite annoyed. Still has lots of original burrows so will be fine. I won't do this again until I don't see him for a year haha.

    Mine used to do that, I'm a worrier when it comes to my animals and it used to drive me crazy! But she would always come out in a month or so like nothing happened.
    I will get another someday, they are great scorpions.

    Agreed, yeah a happy scorpion is an unseen scorpion. He is a male and no idea how old he is. Nice too see him again.
