Hi, so i'm new to scorpions but i do have past experience with mantids and leopard geckos as well as certain more fluffy creatures! So, one week ago i got a H. Laoticus from metamorphosis. Since then i have let it settle in, and have left crickets in the enclosure with it(i dislike doing this due to my experience with mantids , though i did provide adequate food for them) I have however found these crickets in the morning, and when offered to the scorpion in an obvious manner, it does not even react, even when they are moving on the ground in front of it, and touching it. It does not have any of the factors hinting at a moult and always curls up in its hide, seemingly afraid, though i have only checked on it once in the last two days.

Welcome to the forum!

Yeah, sounds like pretty typical behavior to me.

On another note, are you sure that's a H. laoticus? I swear I can see some granulation on the carapace, which would indicate otherwise. I could be wrong of course.

If you can get close up pics of the carapace, patella of the pedipalps, and a side view of the 5th metasomal segment I can give a positive ID.

Best,

Collin
