Topic My baby 4i Stigmurus don't wanna eat :'(

Post by markkearneyg on Fri Nov 15, 2013 5:30 am

I recently got my baby stigmurus this last nov 29. i brought him home and rehouse him to a cricket keeper. my problem is that my baby stigmurus don't want to eat, I left him 2 lateris but he's ignoring it. it's almost 10 days after the rehousing and he's still his not in the mood of eating those lats. What should I do? I'm afraid that my baby stimurus will die Crying or Very sad . I red an article/topic similar to my problem with same stigmurus problem and I'm afraid God will take him. any helpful advice my fellow hobbyist?? :pale:T.I.A Sad

I'm sure God doesn't want to take  your scorpion. Can you post a picture maybe he's pre molt and not interested in eating. Also scorpion can fast for fairly long periods of time. 10 days isn't that long to them but a young scorpion not eating usually points to some issue. How are you keeping him? Temps and humidity? On what substrate?

i keep "him" (i know he's a female cause all stigmu are females but i want to call him "him") hehehe i keep him in a small criket keeper maybe its approximately 5x4x3. and i think our temperature here in the philippines is between 25-32c most specially here at NCR (national capital region) where temperature are usually hotter than other provinces. i always keep the substrate wet (not so wet but not so dry) and i provide him a water dish. by the way im using cocopeat ser. TIA for answering my questions Smile (sorry for my bad english) hehehe Smile

Most of the time it's fairly difficult to tell what's wrong with a sick scorpion except if it's in premolt.

Is that the Tityus stigmurus next to the water bowl?

That sucks about your Centruroides nigrescens. I've never had that happen to me but it looks like the mites got him too me.

no it is not my stigmurus. it is the lateris ser. i removed the legs of the lateris so my stigmurus will have no trouble catching his prey.
