Last night I had to go to work and my roommate left the window open, I came home to check on my scorpions and one is active the other is just sitting there.. will move his tail very slowly... Is he dying?..

Was the tank/room cold? It may have been cold and just needs to warm up. Hope he gets better!

Edit: As long as his tail isn't laid on the ground behind him, and his legs aren't curled inward, then he should still be alive.

^ agree most insects... well animals for that matter like reptiles and such will all slow down when temperatures drop to a certain point, keep him warm till he starts moving again =)


hope he gets better =)))

Yuh, I kept breathing on him to make him warm and he eventually started moving around the tank, I was just wrried as **** about my little couple, it's a male and female match as far as I can tell.. Wouldn't want them to get lonely, they follow each other everywhere.

tail wagging sometimes precedes an attempt to molt... mist the enclosure maybe it will help

They aren't wagging their tails at all. So I don't need to worry about that.. When at rest the tail is curled to the side and when they move it is in pretty much the same position.

I noticed that if they're wandering outside of their hide/burrow for a few days, they're on their death bed. Happened to me with a couple of emps.

They never spend more then 20-30 mins outside of their hide, go back, then maybe a little later come out.. And only at night. Also, it is not everynight.. I take it as their looking for prey.

Typically they will sit at the edge of their burrow waiting for prey, as hunting is not much of an option because it consumes too much energy because of their massive chela.
