Iím not really sure if it is a female! all I know is that we bought 2 of them around six months ago, the one had died about a month after getting them. The one I have now has always been pretty normal, we feed it a dozen of crickets around every two weeks, it doesnít even eat all of them, about a month or so ago I noticed that it seemed to be getting really big. I wasnít sure if it was just growing or getting fat, it is not eating any different then before, so I took it to my local store where I bought it from, they donít have a clue of what is going on with it. So I came to this web to try and find some answers! I Love my Scorpion very much and I would hate to see it explode, because thatís what it looks like!!!

There are a few different things that it could be.
1. It could be gravid (pregnant)
2. Itís eating too much, thus getting fat
3. Itís fixing to molt
A dozen crickets every 2 weeks is fine for 2 scorpions but is a bit much for just one.
