I have owned my 2 emperor scorpions for about a year now and they're great! Every so often the female will come out of hiding and just stands with her bum in the air, why does she do this?

I just got my desert scorpion today as well. It is fairly small but that's ok it has lots of room to grow. Wonderful looking scorpions they are.

Scorpions are not hermaphrodites. The male and female will clench pedipalps and "judder," sometimes "cheliceral kiss", release, and the male will deposit his spermatophore and guide the female over it. She picks it up, then you get mini scorpions later.

I have had a Scorpion as a classroom pet for a while now. It became very sluggish, and acts almost dead if not dead. I have added food, crickets, and it has plenty of water...am I missing something? How will I know if it does die? Should I wait for a period to see if it is just in molt, and recovers?

    Scorpions tend to be very sluggish for a day or two right before molting. Check the information above for reasons why they may have difficulty molting, i.e. humidity. Also... check to make sure the temperature is in the range they require.

For in depth knowledge of arachnids, you should visit a hobbyist site like arachnoboards, scorpionforums, insect geeks, and the like.

I love my scorpion so much. One day Rocky was as still as a rock. When I picked him up he wasn't moving. I was convinsed he was dead so I was upset but the next day he was moving so I was jumping for joy. I love my scorpion!

This site is great. I have a 6cm long death stalker spider. I have to go the hospital because of this critter more than once. It gives me one heck of a time but it is so cute!

Today I came home, after an eye appointment, to see my male scorpion eating the face off the female emperor scorpion. Been with me for a couple days now, fed the male and then he kept stealing the females food, and finally decided to eat her.
