Is this the right height for my scorpion's tail? It seems awfully low Sad



Also, could someone post an image of a scorpion that's dragging its tail so I have future reference?

Thanks

Is (s)he actually dragging his/her metasoma on the substrate?
It doesn't look like (s)he's dragging his/her metasoma to me, if she was it would be completely straight.
Emps tend to walk walk with their metasomas somewhat extended.

So unless his entire metasoma is all the way down and being dragged, I don't have anything to be worried about?

If you notice his metasoma start to lower even more, along with him becoming lethargic, something is wrong. But at the moment he appears fine.

My emps tend to walk with their tail down a lot when they walk over uneven surfaces such as my arm. It seems to me that they use the tail for ballance.

My Pandinus imperator walks like that to, but very rarely, as I bought him from a PetCo, and I'm guessing he's a wild caught specimen as the reason. I kinda want o breed him, but parental consent could be a problem along with the fact that I want a different species too.
