I was feeding my female emp she seems very hungry lately, i was feeding her maybe 2 medium crickets a week but lately she's willing to eat about 5 a week, is this normal because i understand they only eat when hungry? could she be approaching a malt or gravid?

while eatting she also began soaking her self in her water dish is that strange?

In case you are worried..

You can never overfeed a scorpion as they only feed when they are hungry.
2 medium crickets or 1 adult cricket per week is what some keepers do to regulate a healthy feeding habit (for sub-adults- adults).

Since you are asking if she's approaching a molt or gravid, i'll assume she's more towards the size belonging to a 5.instar to 7.instar.

If she does not have a dark red telson, most likely, she's heading for a molt.

As for soaking herself in the water dish, it is normal Smile
