Advertisement Since I got my scorpion, he has been eating very light... He ate MAYBE 2 crickets total and I base that off the fact that they went missing after I put them in the enclosure for him... When I offer him food he avoids it or ignores it. Is this normal? I dont know how scorps pre-molt but he doesn't look swollen soooo I doubt it. Is it normal for scorpions to be shy eaters? I have had him for almost a month I think.
