Hey Dude!! (just had to say that)
Just curious, what is that spot on the 5th tail segment? Looks as it may be mycosis. "IheartMantids" has a B Jax with some spots similar look here http://scorpionforum.darkbb.com/scorpion-pictures-videos-f13/some-gravid-scorps-t135.htm 3rd pic down... and his didn't make it... you might want to check it out.
It may be a scar or mycosis (mycosis is a fungal infection that is bad) I'm not an expert on the subject either, I have a flatrock with a spot on her leg joint, been there for several months (a year in June) without a problem just growing slowly, "Iheart"s were all over his B Jax and it died eventually. Maybe someone with more experience will put their thoughts in, and maybe if you could get a closer pic of the spot it may help 'see' what it might be.

thats a bummer.... well i guess i will try and get a better pic later...
I cant see the pics on here unless they are attachments but if you email it to me or take a better picture I'm sure I could tell you if it has mycosis or not.

Yeah, all 8 of my M. martensii cam with varying states of mycosis 2 died in 2 days. They rest were going to die very soon I had a HUGE thread on it ages ago. If it is indeed living mycosis and considering the humidish requirements of jacksoni it could become an issue and can be spread between scorpions. So wash you hands before you handle your emp or work in its cage or even feed it too. This is being overly cautious but it is a serious aliment that you really want to avoid.
Oh, BTW its a female.
heres a better pic of the tail... if it does have mycoses will it ever go away or is it just going to die?....
Hmm does look like it. I can also see a spot on its 2nd leg on the right side in this photo and on its side maybe. I'd really prod and look at 100% of its body and take photos as necessary.
You could kill the fungus. Considering she is most likely an adult she won't need the humidity to molt. You could place her into Dry ICU for some time. I'd separate her from the rest of the group if you have more than one.
she's full grown?? lol and if i want to kill the fungus i jsut put her into a dry enviroment?
uhh any info on this subject would help a ton...
jacksoni are quite small I was very surprised when mine matured. Hell I could fit 3 2i jacksoni on a penny.
There are lots of threads on doing this but with mites and some with fungus.
I can't think of any off the top of my head. Try searching for my thread on my M. martensii mycosis issue.
There is a special cycle method to the Dry ICU.
So anyone else care to take a stab of setting up a ICU schedule for this.
Dang man, I'm sorry to hear about the mycosis -- though mine had it a lot worse:
Looking at the size of your finger I'd guess you've got an adult female.
I hope she lives for a while, 'cause this is a fun species. Best of luck with her.
wow this sucks.... not only do i find that this new scorp has it but one of my young female emps does as well... well at least i think so.. there's a whole bunch of black spots on the sides of the body like on the membrane.
edit: i jut looked over my new B. jacks and it has a few more spots i think i count 3 others besides the one on the tail
