    If you could post a picturs I think we would have a better idea. I would want to know why it happened. If it happened before you got it or a month or so ago then I wouldn't worry. I think the cause of the loss is more importatnt than the loss. Inverts can do fine missing a leg or two.

    yeah, he should be fine. I've had scorplings lose legs before, they were all fine.

    When you feed him ( or her )

    I had a scorp drop a leg , so to help him out I would remove the back legs from the crickets before I would feed him . It doesn't kill the cricket , just slows them down enough to help the scorp catch em .
