Hello!

According to GS' [HOW TO] Guide to Feeding Young Scorpions

Feeding routine for scorplings ( 2 to 3.instar ):
- 2 or 3 times per week and quantity is one feeder for each time
- To prevent over-powering by the feeder, the size of feeder has to be specifically chosen
- The recommended size is half or no bigger than the mesosoma (body) length of the scorpion itself

Oh, I was wondering if the Hottentotta hottentotta are an aggressive species and whether they like dry conditions or humid conditions.

Yes, they're aggressive, but you can keep adults together I believe without too much hassle. They prefer it dry. Keep like any desert species.

You're welcome! Just remember to provide lots of hiding places for them and plenty of food and it should all work out just fine!

I don't know why but my one of my Hottentotta Hottentotta can't move its legs.  I tried tapping him to make him move but it seems to have lost the ability to move his legs.  It can still move his pincers and tail but it can't seem to move its legs.  Is there something I should know?  Is it trying to shed?  Its exoskeleton is kind of light colored and and looks a little flaky.  I really need help.  Is there something I can do?

Also, all my other scorpions are fine and very active.  But this one started to do weird actions like moving its tail up and down repeatedly and walking around everywhere.  Just something that might be helpful to find out what's wrong. Sad
