    Hi,

    I am relatively new to scorpions, and I am worried about my first one. My knowledge is rather based on Birdspiders, so I would like to ask about your opinion. I noticed today, that my scorp has some white spots on one leg. I will put the pic in the attachment.

    I'm curious, is it fungus, and should I worry about it.
    Thanks for your help ;)

    Looks like frass, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Agreed. Might add some peat moss to the enclosure as a preventive measure though.

    The term in English is "Tarantula."

    You can try rubbing it off with a wet Q tip to see if you can get some of that off.

    Woher kommst du genau? Deutschland oder?

    If that is fungus i'd recommend for you to dry your enclosure for some days and just use a water dish for hydration. Hope it helps. :)
