    Emporer Scorpion

    So she has been cruising around her tank like she has no place to go or like she can't sit still and also carrying her tail low and just STRANGE ...she looks gravid to me and has for a couple of weeks now. Do Emps do this before the give birth?

    The only time I've ever seen an Emp walk around with its tail low was when it was poo'ing. That doesn't mean they don't do that when they're gravid. Never had a gravid emp.

    Pictures would help determine if it is gravid. It may also just be normal emp behavior. They have been called the scorpion version of rose hairs. They just do weird things, it is their nature.

    Fat lady! :o
    I'm very glad I don't ever have to buy shoes for my pets.

    Sorry for such a delay. Well it is definitely mature. You can tell by the color of the telson. As for gravid, I can't say for sure, but it is pretty big. Can you see embryos if you shine a light on her side? Also what is her feeding schedule like?
