my desert hairy seems to have changed (Hardrurus arizonensis)

normally she is quite a happy little thing, digging away and munching whenever she can but just recently she seems to be very lethargic... i cleaned her out today and she was very quiet, dragging her tail through the sand and walking a bit funny...

could it just be the weather change or what?

i am worried about her

please let me know if you have any ideas

Tail-dragging is either the scorpion wiping its butt, or dying of old age.

If the tail stays straight for a while out behind her dragging on the ground, she is on her way out i'm afraid. Sad

Probably not. I have a young emperor who often does the same, but when disturbed, the tail will curl up. Very healthy and definitely no signs of dying Smile

I was just saying the usual signs that normally show when an adult is going out for the count.
