Advertisement I recently purchased an Emperor Scorpion and had it shipped (from a breeder) to my home, via express overnight shipping. The tank set up is, according to what I've read here, in a solid place. I didn't leave the scorpion in the package and collected it immediately. I took some time to make sure I was home for delivery. As for how it's behaving: * It was very sluggish when I put it into the tank. It mostly stayed right where I gently plopped it down. * My husband fed it a mealworm after a little while to see if that would get it to react, and the scorpion did take it and moved into the hide we provided. However it seemed to just hold the mealworm for a while, and when we checked later it wasn't holding it (we didn't want to lift the hide to see if it ate it or dropped it, in case we stressed it out). * It's tail is curled, but not "up in the air". It's sort of curled all the way forward (almost like the stinger is about to rest on the ground. * It did not go deeper into the hide than just into the entrance, it's easily visible from the outside (but it's technically "all the way in" in the sense that even it's tail is inside). Temps: 87 warm side, 78 cool side. Humidity: 86%. Substrate: Coconut fiber. Water: Reverse osmosis. Color: Black. So... is my scorpion showing signs that it's not going to make it after the trip, or is this "stress and a new home"? https://imgur.com/a/2WFzh0l This is what she looks like, with an example of her tail not being held up and away but drooping (it has drooped a little more since this was taken, but is not flat out or anything). This is a video of her "eating" and then moving into the hide. It also shows the tail being held at a 45 angle. About two hours after this her tail had "drooped" quite to the side and I thought maybe she'd died. I used tongs to gently nudge the tail and she turned around fairly fast.
