Hi, my scorpion moulted yesterday all seemed fine till i noticed a gash on his side. I guess the last bit of his skin got stuck or dried out maybe and ripped a chunk of his flesh out. i took a couple of photos:

It doesn't seem as bad, but he does seem to be in a lot of pain with it, he hasn't moved much and is sat near his heat mat. Do you think it will heal ok or any suggestions on what to do, many thanks.
