My wife took these pic's with her phone camera. I'm out of town and she's worried. They have been like this for over 2hrs.
1. Female on the left male on the right.

2.


Do I need to be worried? Question

I've seen pictures of similar "tail-catching" from H. obscurus. Looks like mating, but then the female was alread gravid.

I'm inclined to say that this is not mating, but rather is some sort of scuffle probably over territory. H. arizonensis aren't the most communal scorpions. I know some would disagree and that they have been kept communally with a bit of success, but most find that it doesn't work out in the long run.

Looks like the scorpion equivalent of having each other in a head lock! Very Happy

I'd keep a close eye on those guys or I sense a severed telson.

I'm not sure what's happening, but I've posted this once already. Good news, my wife said, she put a piece of paper between them and they separated. Now they are under the log together. Go figure!!!

Inclined to agree, considering one of mine just killed the other

Truly sorry to hear that. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do yet. It may be decided for me by the time I get home.

I also agree with street, i have seen fights like these before. Better to have them seperated. Hope they are alright Smile.
