Ok so. My scorpion almost never eats... I think she ate a mealworm the other day, which would be the first thing she's had in months. I do give her food but she doesn't touch it and I always end up taking it out. She doesn't do much usually but for the past few days she's been getting up and wandering around the cage and she gets really jumpy. Now she's stopped again and she's just sitting really still with her tail up. I'm not sure what to make of this. I was also told she was "very pregnant" when I bought here, but since that was in December and still nothing's happened I'm starting to doubt the source.

Sounds like she's just being weird. Nothing to worry about.

Also, the gestation for this species can range from anywhere between nine and 18 months.

I guess I missed the species of this scorp, but I'm guessing P.Imp but just in the wrong location. Scorpions tend to fast every once and a while and if she is pregnant then this sounds like normal behavior to me.

Unless he/she means tail in the air such as "stilting"

But chances are, your scorpion and im laso guessing pandinus imperator just isnt hungry and is just being silly to make you worry...unless she is gravid then refusing food before birth is normal...
