Hi Shawn,

From my unexperienced position as a scorpion keeper, it doesn't look like anything unusual, Just it seems he's ready to molt. Although I could be very wrong, wait for a more accurate and experienced answer Wink

Its either as triangulum said or its a shipping mishap. Sometimes when they ship scorpions, they may get a little squished or such. Most of the time a molt will fix this but there are those one odd times.

The scorp in question doesn't look like it's approaching a molt, but I wouldn't worry a whole lot . . . the impactions that sometimes raise concern actually push adjacent tergites apart at one side.

And as I said before, please type in whole words and complete sentences. It makes your posts much easier to read both for the general population and for our foreign members who may not speak English as a first language.

Cheers.

Looks totally normal - Appears to be just be the grey membrane that will reveal itself more and more as the scorpion either gets closer to a molt or becomes fatter.
