Well i went to check on my gravid female and i found her with her tail stretched out... I used my tongs to go in and she attacked them with her claws but her whole tail seems to have gone limp or not using... ANY ADVISE?! I am very concerned!!!

Not eating in a weeks especially if gravid is normal. But limp tail, is not. She "attacked" your tongs so it might not be a big deal normally a dying scorp won't attack but the tail bothers me...might be dying, sorry. How gravid is she can you post a pic?

Scorps sometimes stretch their tail out to poop. If not dying.....then constipated? Laughing

Tail is so stiff I feel like it will snap if I would try to bend... she's still feisty otherwise but not staying in hide at all either...

I'm sorry bud, but it sounds like she's dying. If she gets more stiff, the most humane way I know of to end her pain is to put he in the freezer. *******DO NOT DO THIS******* if she's not dying. Post up some pictures of her, and describe her behavior in more detail.
