PostSubject: Advice for hurt emp? Help please   5/16/2013, 11:00 pm

While I was away, my dad checked on my emperor scorpion (Ben) since he had been inactive for a few days (which yes, is normal for him but I like to see if he's eaten his crickets when I toss them in), but the small half-log house slipped and may have hit his front claw. My dad feels awful:(

I checked on my scorpion when I came home, and he seems normal but his claw that was potentially injured I think. He doesn't want to open it. I don't think its bleeding or leaking or cracked or anything. I didn't want to harass him too much, but what should I do? Is it possible that it is just hurt a little or bruised, or may it be permanent damage? What can I do to help my emperor? Thanks for any advice, I know my dad feels terrible about hurting Ben, and this is my first emperor

He shouldn't be affected too much if the claw is damaged. If he can still molt, it may be fixed or discarded then. Since Pandinus imperator has such powerful claws, prey usually is just squished. He does have venom too, but that is almost never used. Pictures would help too.

Sorry I messed up posting these pics, but it doesn't appear that his claw is hurt, cracked or oozing anything. He is dirty thought because of his moist bedding. If you want any other types of pics I'll try to get them up.

Probably no more than 10 inches at absolute most, if anything it probably only fell 4 inches, and the log house fell into/onto the pile of shredded coconut bedding, so it kind of cushion the fall my dad said.

I had one climb out of deli cup while i was moving tanks while cleaning and she fell about a foot into a bare tank. I felt terrible and heard a thud but she is fine and doing great so I am sure you will be fine

The pictures shown, show me more of a red coloration of the chela (pincer) than typical for P. Imperator also no dent as pertains to sexual dimorphism, the scorpion looks more like a female Pandinus Cavimanus to me, looking at the chela.

But I cannot make a 100% correct or exact determination, without a more complete clear picture of the animal top and underside. If you want to know this, post the necessary pictures please.

I can't add anymore to the answer already given to your question regarding your scorpions possible injury, however I would make a request.

Please change your username, I find the name "gestapo" heavily offensive, and reminds me of the nazi's.

Please remove it.

Thank you.

I'll be sure to change it, since it appears to have offended you. It was never meant to be offensive, and I apologize to you that it has made you feel that way.
