So, unforunately, my adult female emperor scorpion who has given me 27 babies in the past, passed away recently. Seemingly drown in her waterbowl while I was away for for the weekend, however she is bigger than the waterbowl and can easily get out. Either way she was a wild caught (probably) pregnant adult when I got her and I've had her a few years.
So anyway, I decided preserving her would be a fitting end, rather than the bin. I followed Lycanlord's advice
So, I opened her up down the fleshy side:
I was going to attempt to see some anatomy. But after a couple of days dead and a month in the freezer, it wasn't possible to see anything other than the begining and end of some sort of digestive tract. This Google Book
is a good source for anatomy.
Scooped out the insides, and dried them with cotton wool:
Filled with cotton wool to stuff:
I also placed a suture in her side to keep that cut side together and stop it opening up.
Then, hair sprayed all over her, underside first, then top, then legs and re-did under and top. Placed into a sort-of natural position as possible:
Allowed to dry for a couple of hours, and then framed her up
£4.50 for the frame, modified slightly to make it deeper:
I'll update this in a month or two as to whether it's worked, hopefully it has!
