Is she an adult?
Do you think she looks gravid?

My emp used to do that all the time about 3 weeks solid before she gave birth.

If you're not sure then just load up a pic and i'm sure we could tell Smile

hmmm, difficult to see - she's definately not gravid.

I'd say wait on another opinion on lethargy as i don't know much about that

I think you can only say that if she has a pile of babies on her back.

Anywho, your emp is just being weird. Nothing to worry about.

Don't you mean if she doesn't have babies on her back?

I mean, I think you can only say she's definitely NOT gravid if she has just given birth . . . it's not plainly obvious that a scorpion is gravid in the early stages of embryonic development, so just casually saying that one isn't gravid is a bad blanket statement and misleading.

she stopped doing that. rasputin told me the exo terra blu glo brand of bulbs were okay for the scorps, dunno if it was that bulb, cause shes not too hot.
