Pandinus imperator unable to move left claw...

    For the past couple of weeks I have been noticing that my female P. imperator is unable to move her left claw. I have offered her food and she does not want to eat, I have touched her claw and it still does not move. Although her right one works fine. The left claw just seems to hang there....


    Any idea as to what is going on?

    What is the temperature and humidity inside the enclosure?
     
  3. The temperature is about 95 degrees. And the humidity is at 90%.
     
  4. Give us a picture of the claw! It could be broken or have some sort of parasite infesting it (I had a petshop Het with a huge crack that I didn't notice for several months)... Also is it a communal scorp or living by itself?
     
  5. I found her dead today... :(

    I am pretty sad, Because she was my favorite of my collection. Maybe she died of old age.

    Darn, you have my condolences. At least you were able to provide the old girl with a caring, and stress free environment.

    At least she gave me some babies, They are 3rd instars right now.
