I don't know much about scorpions. I have an Arizona Bark Scorpion, we feed him crickets. He's usually very active (especially at night) and lately, as of the past week, he has become "sluggish". A cricket can stay with him up to a month before he eats it, so nothing seemed abnormal at first. I first noticed he would fall on his side, his tail seemed very hard and almost like he couldn't support the wait of it. I tried to stimulate him (which may have been bad I found out), when I would his legs would slowly move. He was in this slow moving state on his side for about a day and a half before I decided to isolate him, take the cricket out and move him away from other animals. As of a day ago he hasn't moved at all, his tail is still stiff, slightly curved, but his legs are curled in and his claws are limp. I don't know if him still glowing under black light means anything? I was told some scorpions molt on their back but I'm afraid I've tampered with him too much. Is his tail being hard still a sign or anything? Please help!
(I would post pictures but I can't figure it out...)
