Haven't been here in a while but I can't figure out what's going on. So my Pandinus sp (sold as imp but looks Cav to me, been kinda out of the hobby a bit so I'm not sure), has had these white dry patches spreading over her. Looked at her today and this is what I found. Behavior is all normal.

I saw your post on the other forum. †Have you cleaned the enclosure? †One possible suggestion for this is it is some kind of fungus but I could not tell you 100%

Jesus. I've never seen or heard of anything like this.

Here's what I want you to do...

First, put it in an ICU and moniter it for a few days. See if it spreads further, or if any of it disappears. Try removing some of it with a cotton swab.

Second, completely clean out that tank. Change the substrate, either clean or get rid of any hides, water dishes, or anything else. Wash the tank itself with hot water. And speaking of water, make sure the water you use for your scorpion is good enough to use for yourself. If your tap water isn't very good, don't use it unless it's filtered.

As long as her behavior is normal, set up the tank again and return her to it. If it doesn't seem to be affecting her I wouldn't worry about it too much. I frankly don't know what to make of this. I mean, it looks as if the exoskeleton is turning a silver color. Granted, I'm on my phone so I probably can't see it very well.

Keep me updated though. I'm very busy and may forget to check so you may have to email or PM me.
