Advertisement my scorpion hasn’t eaten in over 4 weeks. I bought it in late January from a guy who couldnt take care of it anymore and since I have 8 tarantulas I was already prepared to take care of it. He told me it was a dictator scorpion but it’s probably an Emperor. Anyways, my scorpion will never chase his prey. I have to put it right in his claws for him to grab it. Once I do, he will Carry it in his mouth for a minute or two and then spit it out and by the morning it will be buried. This happens every time i try to feed him. He is also an extremely active scorpion. Just not when it comes to feeding.
