PostSubject: scorpion, VERY LAZY, crossed legs, doesn't appear to be molting tried everything   12/9/2014, 5:49 pm

About 3 weeks ago my scorpion decided he was going to get super lazy I thought just because its a little colder (canadian winter came along). He would "Hibernate" so to say. For days at a time he will lay there completely still and flat to the point I think he's dead. But then I wake up and hes on the other side of the tank. Ive tried raising temp. And humidity. Just temp. Just humidity nothing works. Only 2 weeks since he's eaten. Not swollen like hes gunna molt. Just lazy. On top of it all his middle two legs have somehow become crossed therefore restricting one of them. Ive fixed it once but it went back within a day or two. ANYTHING HELPS

Are you sure your scorp isn't just grooming itself? They may sometimes cross legs or look humpbacked when they cleaning their legs and undersides.

A photo or video will definitely clear things out

What species of scorpion is it? What temperature are you keeping it at? What humidity are keeping it at? Any other details about its enclosure etc. would also be useful.

Also hes a black asian scorpion. He has a few hides but rarely uses them. No dead crickets in there. 3 inches of coco fiber. Sufficient water and heat pad in the side. No mites noticed

could it be from some kind of chemical poisoning? Do you use air fresheners or have aerosol room deoderizers?
