Of your scorpion of course. Mostly the disabled claw.

She is eating the crickets, or is not?

It has been noted by keepers that tropical scorpions display more aggressive behavior when humidity is low. You can just pour water onto the sub for more saturation, or set up a false bottom to keep humidity up.

You can also boost the humidity by covering 2/3 of the top of your tank with plastic wrap or plexiglass
or even just a towel. This may also boost your temps, so you might want to keep an eye on them.
