Different superscript letters represent significant differences between mass-loss treatments (ANCOVA of arcsine transformed percentages, followed by Newman-Keuls test; α=0.05). Hepatopancreas lipid content (percentage of hepatopancreas dry mass) following losses of 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20% of the scorpions' initial mass. Values are mean ± s.e.m.; (N), number of scorpions.
