Well i have a Hottentotta hottentotta silings just molted to 2i just a week ago. i noticed some of them has this strange posture as if they stiffed or something. they cannot move their arms/joints and tails freely.i really don't know whats the cause of this. is anybody know or experienced the same case?

How is the water supply for this sling?
I have several specimens started to go "stiff" due to dehydration, depends on the severity, a mist at one corner might salvage her in time. Not sure if its the same in your scenario..

i thought dehydration was the cause of this. i regularly mist their enclo atleast once a day. maybe i'll try to mist it twice.

Mist twice a day might be too much if the ventilation is not sufficient.
You can consider putting in a small cluster of forest moss at one corner and mist on it lightly.
It can hold the water longer while a mist on the wall will eventually flow into the sand substrate Smile

Does this mean you started misting because you thought they were dehydrated or had you been regularly misting anyway?...If you hadn't been misting so much prior to them molting to L2 then i guess there's a probability that a dry atmosphere has affected some of the scorps by drying the newly formed exoskeleton out to quickly...If so then i doubt extra misting will change anything.....their exoskeletons are already hardened now!

yeah i thought that also but it's too late..

before i notice this incident, i regularly mist their enclo (small delicup) once a day which i've had done with my previous desert slings.
Slings are doin great now. but the stiffed one (5 of them) didn't make it.

If you have provided that same humidity (e.g. regular misting) for all of your desert slings, it is weird that only these 5 slings dried up and die due to a dry atmosphere. Maybe you can find any similarities in other keeping conditions of these casualties as compared to those that have survived well and molted successfully..

Than again.. it may be just a co-incidence on the deaths.. sometimes unexplainable things happens.. even though we have done all the things right. Sorry about your loss bro..
