A picture says more than a thousand words. I did this to prove that scorpions DO NOT eat theirselves to death. She kept eating and eating, until finally she got too bloated. She doesnt eat anymore now AND as you can see, she still is alive.

6 crickets and 2 adult grasshoppers are in there, somewhere.... She is quite big if you look at the cup under her. In comparison with the bicolors.. lol

Not moulting (she is an adult, as far as I know), not gravid either (as far as I know)

Is it healthy? I dont think they care. Does it shorten their life? It prolly does! Do you need to keep them this way? No.

OMG lol thats just food is it??? dont keep feeding her silly ...lol

i get really annoyed at these people that feed and feed there dogs or cats till they weigh more than there owners and cant even walk...would you do that to a cat or dog if you had one?...thats not love thats cruelty

NOT saying thats the same for scorps though lol...obviously...maybe she just likes her food lol

think lil miss fatty needs to go to weight watchers lol

No I dont think so, it is because she s up for an 8th moult.. or just food. I did this because I liked how she attacked locust AND to prove that they will stop feeding when they're full.

Lol its no sight though. The scorpion from my avatar is this one.. shame really lol

Lol bex, same here Smile

She doesnt really have the characteristic look of premoult though.. so she might be just fat lol
I dont think gravid, although chances are pretty good since she is WC and together with a male in the same enclosure.
It would suck though since I have 5 P. transvaalicus scorplings incoming lol. The way she is feeding reminds me much of my Bicolor female.. so it is possible. Dont see embryo though.

Bit silly to pay for scorplings if you have loads of these in a few months time. They are known to have large broods.
