Probably pregnant. The reddish-brown telson means she's an adult.

By the way . . . it IS a she, isn't it?

Looks gravid to me. How long has she been like that? See if you can see embryos through her membrane and/or possibly her underside.

it's an adult, a fat one, that cord thing is visible along the back, and it's probably W/C.. right?

I'd say there is definetly a good chance it's gravid.

as brandon said.. can you see white blobs through the plural membrane? (the grey skin - like bit)

she has been getting increasingly fat since i bought her about a month ago from the pet store

i can't really see anything through her membrane because it's such a dark grey with a little bit of yellow in it.
she looks a little lumpy

w/c?

and just to make sure, gravid means pregnant right?
i cant really see anything to good through the membrane since it's such a dark grey, same goes for the underside except her underside is more of a yellowish brown color

you wont see anything thought the membrane.
Best bet is to just wait it out

Is she hiding a lot and is she agressive...if she eating?

if you say NO to eating and yes to the other two then you could be onto a winner

yes, gravid means pregnant.. and W/C stands for wild caught, most Scorpions in the pet trade are taken from the wild... most adult females seem to be gravid lol.

Mine shocked me. Male was just dead on the 13th October 2007 and then on the 5th Feb she birthed 19 scorplings. She was HUGE but I didnt think she was gravid even though agressive, not eating and hiding and then BANG babies hahaha
Keep the heat and the humidity up. you might have a wait on your hands but one morning you could be suprised...and when that happens...just leave her along for a week to two weeks
