 I think my emp scorpion is pregnant

Hello,

The trick with Emperor scorpions is basically to watch for a lot of burrowing behaviour, that’s a sign of late pregnancy. But you’re righ to think she is, given she was with 2 other males previously and her intersegmental membranes are showing.

Have you been feeding her a lot more? That would obviously cause her to become more fat... If not, it’s possible she could be, just keep an eye on her weight and how often she shows burrowing behaviours.

Here’s a useful link;

Cheers,
