Hello, back with another question
Just got this scorp and noticed something strange on it's tail. Seems like mold of some kind. I'm sure that it's not just sand dust. Scorpion itself is quite sluggish. Rarely moves around
Any suggestions?
Thanks

you can get a moist cottow swab and clean it off. Looks fine to me. While we're on the subject I actually witness my H.arizonesis pooping yesterday.

Hmm.. never seen a scorp poop...


As for the topic...
That's the spot where the anus of the scorp is located... and I would say 99,9% that is poop.

I wouldn't worry about a thing. And furthermore the inactivity can be a good hint a molt is coming so let it do it's thing and it will be fine I think.

Just for the record, I've seen my emps poop twice. They will straighten and flex their tails, lift their telson, and shoot it outward. It's quite disgusting.

Yup, the arizonensis "wiped" on the side of the enclosure.
