 What in the world is it doing?

I’ve never seen either of my scorpions do this but my emperor is kind of just "standing" very tall with it’s rear raised up and tail curled.

Well.. here’s a pic. He’s been doing this all day and all yesterday. Very odd. Once in a while he’ll go do something, then i’ll look over and he’s doing this again. Is he moulting?

One of mine has been doing that over the weekend too. The only difference is that his tail wasn’t up. Weird

found this while searching for other info...

... In high temperatures, scorpions may stilt, or raise their body off the ground, to cool off their underside.

Dunno if this could be it....heres the site I found it at:
