PostSubject: I'M SO CREEPY!!   10/7/2011, 2:15 pm

We have 2 Emperor Scorpions. The female has started doing something we're referring to as her "Scary Pose" or "Being Creepy". She does this about once every other day. She has been recently fed and displays no signs of lethargy. We haven't been able to figure out what she is doing or why but previously theorized that she may have been hunting. She sometimes sits this way for hours. She stands in a single area, holding perfectly still. She will then stretch her entire body upwards as if sanding on tip-toe and bend her tail high in the air in an arc toward her body. She lifts her claws with them open, and stands perfectly still. Is she basking, or hunting? Today, she actually fell asleep doing this and relaxed. Her tail flopped to one side against the tank which was pretty funny. Anyone have any idea what this "I'm So Creepy Stance" is all about? lol This would satisfy our much-needed bout of curiosity over the matter.

THANKS!

Could she be ready to molt? She's been eating which leads us to believe no, but does look rather bloated...

She's about a year old, that's what the pet shop owner said. She was kept in a big group of males and females.

So does this mean that the temperature is too hot? The hot end of the tank is 90F and the cool end is at 80F.

Not necessarily. They will stilt to regulate temperature, but not always to cool off. Sometimes they are stilting to get closer to the heat source. Your temperature gradient sounds perfect to me so I wouldn't worry about it.
