I noticed that one of the Bark Scorpions in my tank hasnt moved for @ least a cpl hrs,but when I picked him up he twitched his tail @ me....what the heck?
If he was dead wouldnt the other Scorpions have eaten him by now?
I carefully put him back...he sure looks dead...

watch him overnight or up the temperature. Poke it gently. If it moves, it lives Smile

Hmnn.. reducing metabolism rate?
My bark scorps often just hang "lifelessly" for many hours as well..
As long as he moves when poked lightly from behind (as pluto has mentioned) and with no dragging of tail.
He should be fine Smile

Btw, you might have seen, Bex & Jay has scorps which plays Possum. They literally flip over and played dead.. lolz

Haha yeah this is awesome behaviour. C. celebensis just freeze if you touch them, you'll be lucky to get them to move, leave them alone for a minuite and they'll be gone Laughing

E. flav version is just another level and a very convincing act lol.
