Bottom left:
Specimen is in premolt. It has rejected any offered feeders and it's appearing lethargic during this period of it's lifecycle.

Top left:
Specimen has flipped itself with it's back on the substrate prior to a molt (Commonly seen on desert specimens such as Androctonus spp or Parabuthus spp).

Top right:
A recently molted specimen, waiting for it's exo-skeleton to harden before it is ready to hunt and tear it's "food" apart with it's chelicera.

Bottom right:
Specimen's exo-skeleton has fully hardened and is ready to search for food and explore it's enclosure.

Hi, definitely hope i can help.

First, why do you think that it's dying? Is it dragging it's tail or do you see that the legs are curling inwards? 

Any pics/vid of it's current state now?

In what condition are you keeping it in?
