My emperor's tail has been stiff for a few days. His tail is straight on the ground behind him. He is alert but not active. Is this normal ? What could be wrong?

When you say "alert" do you mean he respond to your light prodding but in a lethargic way?
Is he an adult? (red telson)

His telson is brown so he's not an adult yet. He moved away when I touched his leg with my forceps and and grabbed it with one of his pinchers when I put the forceps in front of it. But he hasn't moved from his chosen spot next to the water bowl.

If he's looking very fat, he could be due for a molt soon, else, it might not be looking good.
Any pics?

Unfortunately I don't have any picks but he is quite fat so I'm hoping he 's about to molt.

Usually the "Fatness" of a premolt scorpion, somewhat look like the one in the picture below, or even bigger.



Do keep the substrate damp and the enclosure's temperature between 80-90F and hopefully he'll molt for you soon.

Keep us posted.

Well he is not that big just a a little thinner. He is looking a bit worse today. He hardly moved this morning so I'm pretty worried. Thanks for the help though. I hope he'll start getting better but I doubt it.

Unfortunately when I checked on him earlier he didn't move at all pretty sure he is dead Sad . Thank for the help GS at least I now know what to look for in a molting scorpion. I am planing to get one as soon as possible they are wonderful little critters.
