Okay this actually happened a long time ago but I figured it wouldn't hurt to see if anybody had any ideas. I once owned an Emperior Scorpion it seemed to eat well and was fairly active. Then one day it died, I pulled it out the tank to find a weird green "Fuzz" (for lack of better terms) around it's "mouth" area... have any of you heard about this?

If you are referring to the green bristle-like stuff between the chelicerae, that's part of the mouth part. It functions as a filter for the solid particles when the masticate their food.
