Advertisement Help! I just got this scorpion yesterday and I don't think I will be able to handle it if it dies on me so soon. Since I got him he has been very sluggish, and when I took him out of the packaging I seriously thought he was dead. He has been burrowing some, as he has a clay/sand mixture. He has been very docile and okay with me putting my hands in his cage, which I read this species is supposed to be aggressive. Anyways, tonight he has been moving to various places of his cage, staying in each spot about half an hour then moving again. His tail has been going more towards his side for the past hour, and now he is resting like in the photos above and I'm afraid it is not normal. I have never seen a scorpion molt before so I don't know if that's what this is or not. I'm really worried.
