Hi Mubarak

You can stop the bleeding by putting superglue over it, or so I heard corn flour.. but that is something I am no fan of.

It will be better during a next moult, but I doubt he will regenerate a pincer 100%.

Only use the glue and flour if he isnt able t to stop the bleeding himself.

really? scorpions have clear blood.
i heard that superglue is the best thing to do, the apendage will grow back, partially, over many molts

Scorps don't regenerate lost appendages like other arachnids, but they can function fine with one pincher.

If he is adult, he will not moult anymore. You can tell at the colour of its telson and overall size... It is normal they dont eat at times. They are very efficient with their nutrients and can survive longer without a meal than most people can without sex.

Hehe, well your wait is almost over then! Go find a honey! Smile
And you are right, they can partially repair appendages.. but they dont grow new ones like other arachnids...

Don't sweat it dude, I was 19 . . .

Anyway, moving on before this becomes a TMI thread . . . the only thing scorps can regenerate are the pair of claws each of their legs ends in. So, if they lose a few segments of a leg, they'll end up with a leg that's shy a few segments but still has the tiny pair of claws on the end.

As far as limb regeneration in other animals, it's usually easier the more primitive the animal is. Scorpions are a bit of an exception to that, though. Once you get up to vertebrates, about the only regeneration is found in lizards who drop their tails to escape predators.
