Could always do what they do with those mounted Ts and scorps, pad out the rest of the frame with something like cotton wool or stuffing (like you'd find in pillows or cushions) to keep the scorp in place. Know the type of thing I'm talking about?

Aye that's a good point Toby. I'll give it a month, and then open it up (it's pretty well sealed due to the taping I had to do to "modify" the frame), give it a smell, and re-fix it me thinks, thankies

Good job

Hope it works out for you. Is there no flesh inside the claws (chela?) that could rot?

I remember bringing a crab claw back from the beach when I was young and it started to stink after a few days, lol.

Could maybe get a few sachets of sillica gel in there with it to keep it dry.

when one of my old emps died I just popped it the radiator for a few days to dry out, managed to keep the sting in a threat posture as well. Don't really smell either.
