Well what kind of scorpion is it and is it with a male scorpion? You can tell if it starts getting bigger when your not feeding as often altough it might be possible for it to be molting. Sometimes you can see the emreyos throgh the scorpion. Try to post some pictures or give us a detailed description.

Adelaide, Australia...erm, yeah, I'm kinda familiar with that location. Small world eh! Do you know which species you have? How are you keeping it? Some species will show the embryos through the pleural membrane.

For lots of info on Aussie scorpions you can check out my forum and/or website: www.thedailylink.com/phpBB

How long have you had it? If it is yaschenkoi you need to be very careful if you want to keep it alive.

Mark do you sell Emperor Scorpions

There are no exotic scorpions on the Australian market, it's illegal to bring them in.

All I have available at the moment is Lychas buchari, Urodacus armatus and yaschenkoi.
