How did this injury happen? Did it fall or something? Is it perhaps too hot in it's enclosure? This almost sounds like how they act when it's too hot.

Heres the story Smile

He escaped from his closure (dumb me ). After 2 days he eventually show up while my mother was sweeping the floor he too was swept unto the dust pan, she then shouted and called me right away.

After that when I saw him he was kinda limping and those weird stuffs ohh and he is dragging his tail and hides a lot. I immediately put him into his enclosure again and there it is.

He wont even bother to eat Sad

MAYBE..... he will grow out of it during moulting. no guarantees, i dont know how many times it has molted and i am assuming 2 inches long. there is a chance that during his next moult. my recommendation when it comes to feeding is to offer him 1 cricket everyday until he takes it. preferably tweezer feed since i am guessing he has trouble walking and a stray cricket is deadly when you are injured. I would also damage the cricket in some way. putting it in the fridge for about 30-60 seconds is good too if you dont want to tweezer feed.
i'm not sure if my advice is correct, this is just from research that young scorps can outgrow any injuries.

Scarloc, 2I means second instar, so still very small.

tlb, I suggest ignoring him for a couple days and letting it recover. Maybe its appetite will come back after having a chance to rest.

I doubt severe injuries will recover. It is still very small and relatively fragile (they are pretty hard considering). If you full power sweep it, it will probably have internal injuries.

I don't want to dissapoint you but I don't think the chance of survival is great.
Maybe post some pictures. But from my experiences, inverts that got crashed, died.

Anyway, let's be positive! It might have had the soft spot of the brush :-)
All said, you can't do much but wait and take care of it like you do normal scorplings.

Maybe try feeding it a prekilled cricket so it doesnt have to hunt in the state it is now.
