    i have an Asian forest scorpion about 1.5 to 2 inches body length that hasn’t eaten since I got here about 2 months ago. She’s got me super worried, she mainly stays in her hide and is very in active. Not sure if this is normal or not. Any advice?

    Ok so first off I am not a expert by any means dealing with scorpions. However I do own a Heterometrus spinifer that I got as a scorpling. Mine at that size, which was before his last molt, was a very finicky eater. Most of the time he wouldnt take down live prey or eat at all. I found leaving prekilled or smashing the head of a meal worm and leaving it in overnight sometimes worked. Mine at one point, went atleast a month between meals. Show a picture of you enclosure. Your scorp might still be getting used to his new home.
