Should do I think. It may take a couple of moults though. How big is the scorpion?
Try to post a pic with something next to it for size comparison.

Tarantulas can have their lost limbs regenerated fully in 2-3 molts but not at all for scorpions. A lost limb is gone forever. However, emperors have strong pincers, losing one will not cause him much trouble taking down their prey Smile

& before i forgot, welcome to the forum!

A chelae cannot be regenerated even if lost very early, the best you could hope for is a nemo type claw (yes i'm aware that's a genius analogy).

But if it's an adult it wouldnt matter much if there's only one claw, it's strong enough to catch prey, and it can hold prey with its mouth as well.

Aah, that's what I've seen then. A mate caught an Emp's claw and it came off but it was only young. Looked like it was growing back next moult. Must've been a "Nemo" one coming.

No the claw will NOT come back. Did you purchase it with the missing Chelae/Pedipalp?
