Hi all! I'm fairly new to this forum and a proud owner of two recently bought Emperor scorpions. I noticed that my male(?) scorpion that I bought has what appears to be a legion on its back and was wondering if this was anything to be worried about. I'm not sure if it's an infection or maybe just an old battle scar so any input would be really appreciated.

maybe take him to your local pets store or somewhere where they know something about scorpions and maybe they can treat him or give you advice. I wish I could help you more

Doesnt look too good. There is very little you can do when the exoskeleton of a scorpion gets damaged...

Wait and see, dont bug it too much.

Looks like a battle scar to me. Judging by his telson he has one more molt to go. If this is true, he'll shed it in his next molt.

I was clicking around online looking for diseases these guys get and I can't find much other than mites or in rare instances some fungus. It looks more like there has been an injury of some sort there.

What's his behavior like? Does he seem normal?
