PostSubject: Strange first death   10/22/2010, 11:39 pm

So today after I got home from school, my girlfriend noticed my C. Sculpturatus was hanging from a strip of vine by its tail. Not thinking much I moved her off the vine and she was really stiff. I had read that this species especially, has been known for "playing dead" so I left her there. After more than 8 hours she hasnt moved. So now Im assuming shes gone. I got her as my first scorpion in June of 09 as an adult, so I was wondering if the death could be natural or if it could be a result of the way I found her?

I doubt the way she was hanging was what killed her. My Other C.'s molt like that so its very possible that it was a molting problem....I often find mine dangling with nearly all the body on the ground and the tail and back legs still attached to the bark during there molts....
