PostSubject: Tail Draggers...   2/15/2010, 9:33 pm

Hey all~


Im just trying to find other reasons to why my Emperor Scorpion is dragging its tail?

I know that it usually means it about the time to go, but can there be another reason to be acting sluggish and really drained of life?

Alright, hopefully to hear from you people.

By the way, It was very active the day before and its tail was up and going , but like out of nowhere its so sluggish. So just thought i give you a bit more of a perspective detail.


thank you.

It may be too cold also.
How long has it been like that?
If you touch it does it just stay there?
Does it just lay about in the open,or go into its hide?

Its been been dragging its tail for about a few hours and went outside of its burrow.

As the next day went by and still the same, with very light movement.

Today I found her dead. It left behind 6 beautiful Scorplings and all up to the 3rd instar.

*Tina the Hooker*

That was her name, because she had so many babies. :]

she eats the babies according to what she thinks can survive in the area in which she is living. so if shes living in a 10 gal tank, she may not eat as many as she would if she was living in a 5gal tank.

I wouldn't go on and sell them, but more likely to trade it off for another type of species. drunken
