I don't know how long she's been pregnant but it's been probably a month since she last ate. I don't know why. I was thinking it could have something to do with it being winter right now? I wouldn't really worry about it if she weren't pregnant but since she is I'm afraid the babies will die or something will go wrong because she's not getting enough nutrients.

they can go a long time without eating I wouldn't worry. And the fact that it winter could effect it because scorps need heat fot thir motabolism. Ahh it's great to amswer questions again. Feels like I've been MIA all this long weekend.

I had a huge H. longimanus eat a large cockroach in late September and give birth on November 11th. The babies came out fine, looked healthy, and she didn't eat any, but they all died anyway.

But I don't feel their death had any connection to how long it had been since she'd eaten. (I may have checked on her too much, because she went to hide in a drier spot of the tank where they all died.)

Last year my whole collection refused food over winter, it was 12 to 14 weeks before anyone began to eat. 2 Hets and 1 Pandinus were gravid and birthed in spring before they took food again. So I wouldn't worry too much about that

maybe it is to do with winter. But my grrrl ate, went 4 months, ate two small crickets and then about 2-4 months *didnt count any more* and then gave birth this month.

Maybe its to do with winter or maybe they just dont feel hungry when holding lots of babies inside!
