Hi I've had my emperor scorpion for about 2 months. she has was eating normally at the beginning but now she doesn't eat at all even when the crickets enter her hideout. I even tried to feed her with the tongs she just bats the cricket away and leaves. any suggestions?

Leave her alone for a few weeks, make sure the humidity is high enough and it's warm enough in the tank. Give it a water dish then just leave it alone.
Check every couple of weeks and drop a cricket in every 2-3 weeks. They'll usually start eating again when they are ready.

Wecomw to the forum Smile

Scorps can go months without eating don't worry, is your scorp adult? Sometimes can be a sign of a molt on the way Smile we have one scorp that hasn't eaten for 4-5 months now lol Smile

thnx for the info and my humidity is about 80,90 Degrees when sprayed and goes down to 65 pre-sprayed. Is that a bit too much? sorry that i'm a noob at this.

Welcome, yeah I wouldn't worry about it not eating for a while yet.

Also I wouldn't worry too much about specific humidity just make sure there's moisture throughout all the substrate and that it always has a water dish. Spraying won't do much to an already dried out substrate, it's easier to just pour water into it and let it soak through.
