How will i know if i have a gravid scorp? i recently got a desert hairy and it looked normal, not fat, not skinny, but now about a month later it is absolutly huge! is there a way of telling if she is gravid or did she just eat too much?(i dont see hoe she could have)

this is the night i got her


and this is now


I have not fed in a week and a half because i was afraid she over ate or something but she has not shrunk, maby even got bigger....and she seems hungry...

I would say, going by your descriptions that she is probably gravid - but wait for someone else's opinion Smile

How long have you had her for?
A possibility could be pre-molt but i'm still swayed toward gravid

If she is gravid, don't get your hopes up -- this species rarely makes it to 2I in captivity. No

Best of luck. The only advice I can offer is to make sure she can dig a nice deep burrow that's *slightly* more humid at the very bottom.
