Dead scorpion…

Today I found the smaller of the two captive scorpions dead of an unknown cause. One possibility is that when testing the retainment mechanism I had to take the scorpion in and out of the fridge (they are kept in the fridge to slow metabolism and make them more manageable) in quick succession, possibly causing it to go into shock. Also, I noticed that the remaining scorpion is quite lethargic, leading me to believe it may be dying, possibly due to the same cause as the first.
