Hi all.
I just looked in my tank and saw my 4i liocheles waigiensis laying there on the back. I touched her then she turned over and ran into her hide. Then i looked again in about an hour and there she is again laying in the open. She has only eaten once since i got her about a month ago and that was just half of a small cricket.
Please write back ASAP!

Thank You.

Check the temperature mate. It's probably too warm.

Yeah, that's just about perfect. I don't know what to tell you. Scorps are supposed to do the laying on the back thing when they're too warm.

Sorry I can't help more. I'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

Gl mate.

playing dead can be known to happen with liocheles, tityus and babycurus its known as catalepsy i dont think it means that anything is wrong but i think someone else could prob tell you for sure

hello im new to this website! hi, i bought an emperor scorpion last Sunday and received on Tuesday. When the scorpion came in it was practically dead and freezing. i put it in warm water and he regained complete health. he ate a cricket last night but this morning i saw him in his heated cave with his tail on the ground. I opened the cave and he came completely back to his senses and was very aggressive. i then put him back and he then let his tale drop again. what should i do?
