Do all scorpions stop feeding when they are pregnant? I have a large girl P. boreus who is getting very fat, but shes eating. Do you guys think she is pregnant or am i just making her chubby?

overfeeding is out now theres the other two.molt soon or gravid.

it looks gravid,i believe they eat like pigs for a while while gravid then they stop eating near birth.
if its wild caught it very may well be gravid.it gets pretty wild in the wild.hussies i say.

Like Shining said, they eat like pigs then they stop eating when closer to giving birth. It is gravid, seeing the white blobs so clearly.

yeah the white blobs are the embryos.
i was paying more attention to the red circles,they're actually an alien strain of ring worm.

My boreus were eating three or four small crickets every five or so days. Are you feeding her adult crickets? I noticed that mine weren't much interested in adult crickets, but they ate all the small ones that I would offer. I believe they didn't want to exert the energy necessary to take down the large ones.
