Tito died this week. Tito is my pet scorpion. Was my pet scorpion. According to people who don't suck at raising invertebrates, they are supposed to live 5 to 8 years. I only took one year to kill mine off. The really sad thing is that I still don't know how it died. I have several theories though:
~Didn't feed him enough.
~Fed him too much.
~Kept terrarium too humid.
~Kept terrarium too arid.
~Gave him tap water in his dish instead of distilled water.
~Didn't sing to him often enough.
~Used fungicide in to clean out shower which made the air in the bathroom (where Tito lived) toxic.
~Basement is too cold to support African arthropods. And subarbanite humans, for that matter.
So its on to a new hobby, one which will not cause arachnids (or anything else) to suffer if I am not good at it.
