Hello everyone,

I just bought an Emperor scorpion a week ago. I had to go away for a couple of days and asked my friend to feed him as I didn't since I got him. Mistakenly my friend squeezed his tail right above the stinger while trying to catch a cricket in his enclosure. Now it seems like he's hurting as he is not responding too much with his stinger which he always used to. I am really scared for him and have tried to look for a solution everywhere online but no luck. I was hoping if someone can shed some light on this agenda, is Hercules going to be ok? Should I just leave him alone and just let him be? Do scorpions heal while molting? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

If the anus is damaged the scorp can't do it's thing and this can lead to an obstruction in the intestines and the scorp will probably not make it. If it's only the stinger that has been damaged he should should be fine.

at what instar is your scorpion? if it's already an adult then it would be okay.. an adult emp's exoskeleton is hard enough to withstand a finger squeeze or a tweezer pinch. just make sure there are no scorpion body fluids oozing out. unless of course your friend used pliers to squeeze the tail Very Happy

anyways, hope your emp is fine Smile

Is there any chance you could get a picture?

Great of use the new Emergency section first of all. There might or might not be a cause for concern. If the scorpion Telson (stinger) was damaged then your probably ok and it’ll probably heal in the next molt. If however the scorpion anus (white spot right below the telson) was damaged and it can’t poop it will almost certainly die. So if you can get us a picture we can probably be of more help to you.
