So THAT’s WHY you never got an update on the AntsCanada Scorpion ~ I FORGOT TO UPLOAD IT

I apologize for the delay in providing an update on the AntsCanada Scorpion. It was entirely my oversight as I forgot to upload it. Thank you for your patience, and I assure you that the update will be available soon.

Introduction

I have a confession to make: I completely forgot to upload the video of the Emperor Scorpion that AntsCanada gifted me. It was an oversight on my part, and I apologize for any disappointment or confusion it may have caused. In this article, I will provide an update on the scorpion and explain why the video never made it to the channel.

The Emperor Scorpion and its New Home

Firstly, let me assure you that the scorpion is safe and thriving. I decided to gift it to a close friend who already has experience in caring for scorpions. The scorpion now has a loving and knowledgeable caretaker who is equally fascinated by these incredible creatures.

A Majestic Molt

The scorpion had a recent molt, and it was the biggest molt I’ve ever seen. It was a mesmerizing sight, watching the scorpion shed its old exoskeleton and emerge with a fresh, vibrant one. Witnessing this process reminded me of the remarkable resilience and adaptability of these arachnids.

Determining Gender

Based on its “flappy things,” which are actually called pectines, we were able to determine that the scorpion is female. The pectines are located on the ventral side of the scorpion’s body and play a role in reproductive processes. It’s fascinating to observe these unique characteristics and learn more about the creature’s biology.

Setting up the Enclosure

When the scorpion was under my care, I made sure to provide it with a suitable enclosure. The enclosure had a water dish for hydration and a damp substrate to mimic the scorpion’s natural habitat. It’s crucial to recreate the ideal conditions for these creatures, ensuring their comfort and well-being.

Post-Molt Care

After the scorpion molted, it’s important to note that it may not be fully hardened yet. This means that it is in a particularly vulnerable state, as the new exoskeleton hasn’t reached its maximum strength. During this phase, extra caution and care are necessary to prevent any injuries.

The Asian Forest Scorpion

The scorpion gifted by AntsCanada was an Asian Forest Scorpion. It’s worth mentioning that this species is already fully grown, which adds to its majesty and beauty. Fully grown scorpions showcase their true splendor, with impressive size and distinctive features.

The Need for a Smaller Enclosure

In the video, you may notice that the scorpion is in a smaller enclosure. This decision was made after careful consideration of the scorpion’s behavior and well-being. It refused food and showed signs of stress when placed in a larger enclosure. To ensure the scorpion’s comfort and reduce any potential stressors, a smaller enclosure was deemed more suitable.

Conclusion

I sincerely apologize for forgetting to upload the video of the AntsCanada Scorpion. However, I assure you that the scorpion is thriving and has found a wonderful new home with a caretaker who appreciates and understands these incredible creatures. Thank you for your understanding, and I hope you can continue to enjoy the exciting content that I provide.
