My Hoffmanius Spinigerus had a bad moult a couple months ago and the last 2 metasomal segments including the telson got stuck in the old skin and the last segment of the metasoma seem to be shrinking but its not got any worse in about a month and i was just wondering if there is any chance it will be repaired after the next moult, shes not lost the segments.

Here's a pic of the damage:



sorry its under blacklight but its the best pic i have.

Cheers.

Scorps dont regen anything from molts so iam pretty sure nothing will happen..
But that scorp looks pretty done for, metasoma damaged like that..

not even wounds? cuase its more of a big wound than anything else. it actually think its more like the old skin being forced off by the scorps waste buit the new skin underneath is still compacted cause it never got a chance to expand before it sclerotized.

Spose i'd better keep my fingers crossed then Sad

btw any idea how often this species should moult and how long they live for?

cheers.

Well, he said the bad molt happened a couple of months ago, so it has been alive for quite a while after. Also, I've heard of scorps regenerating and here's proof:

http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/scorpion-pictures-videos-f13/my-very-1st-babycurus-jacksoni-t2663.htm

I've read that they are more likely to regenerate after molts when they're young too. That damage on the scorp doesn't look too good though and it isn't something small.

It doesnt seem to be bothering her at all, she still pokes about her prey with her stinger but never really uses it but then agian shen ever used to use it anyways before the bad moult.

spose ill just have to wait and see when she next moults i guess Sad damnit i dont want a deformed scorp not after the money i spent gettin her Sad

Oki with both mine and a mate of mines servel years of experiance with scorpions and Owner of Scorpion files saying that regenerating scorps doent happen.. iam still sticking with my story.. there is no proof at all, the pictures in that thread cant show anything since they are so blurry that you cant see anything.. and just to make something clear from that thread scorpions cant break the tip of they oculus because thats latin for eye.. they have a aculeus thats the "stinger" the sharp end of the telson Very Happy

I've had a few scorpions with bad limbs moult a few times and no, they do not re-generate. the most "regeneration" I have seen was only a tiny extra bit of cuticle forming over the end of a broken leg after a moult.

If it will indeed molt again, I can't see it getting out of that very easily (if at all) . . . and as Connie said, if it can't poop . . .

No Not lookin' good.

Now now Kejser, you get irritated when others criticize your English even though it's not your first language . . . the guy in that thread is from Malaysia. (Granted, it's Latin, not English, but you get the idea.)

she seems able to poop orite, it seems to be forcing the old skin off caue it used to be totally wrapped in the old skin and now a lot of it has crumbled off the only thing really wrong with her is that the last metasomal segment is pretty thin and ratty but everything still moves ok as far as i can see.
