    Heyy
    I received this girl a few days ago and was wondering if she's pregnant or if that's how she's suppose to look?

    Cheers.

    Yes, i think she is. I actually have a Liocheles Australasiae (Which actually looks like that but smaller in size) and her body is also like that, after some weeks she have 19 scorplings on her back. :)

    BTW, is that Liocheles Waigiensis?

    I was hoping she was just chubby.
    How cute! Are they pregnant for a while? I've tried reading up on them but I can't find a heap of information.
    She sure it ☺

    Mine was wild caught, so i don't really have any idea in how long the gestation period is. Typically scorpions (depending on the species) gives birth in about 5-12 months after a successfull mate. From the looks of your girl, i think she's about to pop. :)

    Oh wow. I didn't realise it was that long.
    This is what she looks like today. She looks way skinnier now, I think.
