Put it in a dry tank with some sand and a hide, and leave it alone. After a day or two to get settled in, try offering it some prey.

In my experience, lot of scorpions seem really unresponsive shortly after being shipped. Hopefully it's just that.

Keep us posted.

Maybe it is just under stress. If it dies contact whoever you bought it from and get them to send you another one!
*very jealous you have a desert hairy*

I swore there was something wrong with my A amoreuxi when I got him but he perked up just fine after a day and started flinging sand around randomly. After he got a cricket is when he really started to go nuts. Now he hangs himself upside down on his hide and just chills. A little unresponsiveness seems normal. 3 of my LQs were pet rocks for a week, now they run around like crazy.

I'm sure it just needs sometime to adjust. My A. Australis is like that, but I also think she might be prego. Give it what it needs and give it time. That's all you can do.
