I recently bought a Heterometrus Spinifer from a local pet shop, I haven't really got any experience with scorpions as my collection consists of 12 tarantulas and 2 frogs, anyway I'm rambling on...
she hasn't been to interested in food, when I offered her a cricket she just pinched it then let it walk away, could she be ready to moult or something? also if she is how long could it be before she does moult?
any advice will be GREATLY appreciated, thanks :)

scorpions can be in premolt for months, they won't eat and then they'll suddenly molt and will want food
others just starve themselves, they aren't very clever it would appear, they do it for no reason at all.

don't worry :D

she's only about 3.5 or 4 inches so it would be nice to see her gain some size lol
thanks again for the help :)
