do NOT cut the leg, scorpions have an open circulatory system and will bleed to death if you cut it even the slightest bit wrong. what species is it? if it isnt very potent try to carefully help the scorpion get its leg unstuck.

What is the leg stuck in? Generally you can just move the object enough for the scorpion to free its self. Also, just so you, scorpions will get themselves into places that will appear like they’re stuck. One of my P. imperator do it all the time. It wedges its self between the tank and the water dish but it always manages to get out.
But yes, as Meee said, do not cut the leg. Try and gently free the leg without pulling on it as scorpions are not quite like tarantulas and injuries, even to the legs, tend to bleed more.

It sounds like you’re getting scorpions and spiders confused. While it is *possible* for a scorpion to regenerate a lost appendage, they do not regenerate like spiders do. With an adult scorpion, it is unlikely that any severed appendage will regenerate.
Also, no, scorpions do not make bowls or baskets when they are ready to give birth. The scorplings simply exit the mother’s body and climb on her back.
