my 2 forrest scorps seem to have settled down a fair bit now together, tonight as i have been watching them both i saw the following take place....

the male & female face each other, and the male seems to touch the female's claws gently then she starts to bob up and down, i also saw her tremble a little, they will grip each others claws, but the male seems to lift his tail right over the top of her as though to sting her but doesnt sting her, then he will turn and walk away, she then walks away, they seem to do this quite often now, in fact most times they come in contact with each other.

So my question is..... is this a mating dance or are they ready to fight...

i have not yet seen them what i would call a fight, but my wife thinks they are fighting, so any advice is greatful. Smile

Usually, you would know it's a fight when it's a fight Smile

From the above, i would say it's not.

Any pics of the pair and your enclosure? Is there a slate in the enclosure?

A smooth stone is fine for an adult male to deposit his spermatophore as well.

Look forward to the pics Smile
