I just went to my emperor scorpion and found him flat out on his back not moving. I thought he was dead but when I used tongs to touch him he moved, though very slowly and stiffly. I have flipped him over, sprayed the terrarium and put heat on him. I am afraid he is stuck in a molt. Any help?

If he hasn't opened his exo-skeleton, there's not much you can do. Just let it be, and see what happens. If the exo is open, search for threads "stuck in molt". It's not an easy thing to fix. Hopefully, it's just taking its time. Don't flip it over like that though. It will get into the position it wants to be in.
