Thankfully no. There's no black spots on either the legs or the underside. What should I do now?its a bit hard to tell from that one spot on the pincer... are there black spots on its underside around the book lung openings? Are the feet blackened and shrivelled up?
Pics of the new enclosure would be great! Hopefully the spot is just a blemish on the claw.I've had the scorpion for almost 2 months from a pet shop. I have no idea when the spot occurred bcs I didnt pay much attention until now. Funny how it only infected the claw
I'm baking the substrate and going to rebuild its enclosure to a false bottom.
Thanks!Very nice enclosure! That should be more than enough substrate, as I think flinders range scorpions are more scrapers than actual burrowers (they'll scrape out a spot under a hide or rock or whatever - they're fossorial). And yes, the humidity should be kept low just in case that is mycosis.
Could we see photos of her with the UV light on her? Her plueral membrane won't glow, just the exo-skeleton parts of her. Also the tip of her stinger won't glow either.my rainforest scorpion has blotches that don't glow when I use a UV flashlight on her. does anybody know what that means?
