I assume the cord on the metasoma (is that the right word for back?!) is more visible in a gravid scorp than a molting scorp?

I think its mesosoma, metasome is the tail bit. anyone correct me if i'm wrong by all means.

cord: usually yes, although some paler scorpions have it pretty visible to start off with.

The cord is usually referred to as the "dorsal nerve cord," but after reading the book that Lisa just mentioned, I think it's actually the scorpion's heart. Very Happy

yup they do, and totally seal themselves in... for months on end!

I know she is coming close so I have had to transfer her to a new enclosure that I can get her out of easily and leave the babies in. Otherwise I would never find them in her normal enclosure!!!

I've heard it called the heart but also the only real "nerve", that runs from the carapace to the end of the tail?

Also I can't imagine its the only real nerve.

Itll probably be something like our spinal cord that branches off to toher parts of the body, im no expert mind u but i do agree with you for having so many senses at their disposal surely they dont just have one big nerve goin down their back lol

No, because the scorpion both has a Nervous System and a Circulatory system
and the scorp has a real heart and thats the "nerve cord" you think your seeing, it extends from the front of the scorpion and allmost all the way back to the Metasoma before its devided into 2 big artories for the Metasoma

the brain or supraesophageal ganglion of the scorpion sits ontop of the esophagus and its connected to the subesophageal ganglion by circumesophageal commissure wich is located below the esophagus. The only big nerves that runs into the back of the scorpion is a ventral connective that splits up futher back into 7 free ganglia, the Ventral connective comes from the back of the subesophageal ganglion

tsk tsk tsk silly newbies Razz heheh well i think that explains it thats taken from Biology of Scorpions By Gary A Polis, but i put it some what in my own words.. Very Happy

sound, so the nerve thing is underneath that?

Also i remember hearing somewhere about stabing a certain part either with a knife (if a person was doing it) or with a sting if a scorp did it to imobilise other scorpion prey if you stab at this point ints an instant kill i think it was like just behind hte carapace or sumthing, I hate to talk about this stuff but im just curious (DONT WORRY! im not gonna go about pokin cocktail sticks into scorps backs lol)

There is no big nerve cord

the stuff your talking about is stabbing the brain, like if you get shot in the brain.. the brain is located just behide the medieal eyes of the scorpion and abit down into the scorp strike that and its instant death yeah..
