Have one of my H. Spinifers molting since about 10pm last night. He's had everything out except maybe the last 1/4 inch on his telson, I tried to get a better look but he managed to scurry down the burrow. Should I dig up the burrow and ICU him? It will certainly be more moist in the burrow than the surface, I just don't know if its worth the trouble of digging it all up, stressing out the other 5 in there for the tiny bit that's left over. But at the same time he's been trying to molt that piece for the better part of 14 hours. I have my ICU prepped and slowly heating up beside the lamp.

Help and Advice is much appreciated,

Aaron.

That's what I was leaning toward, the only thing that bothered me was the length of time it's been going for. 14+ hours to do that must suck, poor little guy.

Thanks Abyss!

the harder the exoskeleton the longer the molt. dunno with scorpions but i have a melon-sized 3 year old (in my possession but older in true age) hermit crab that took almost 3 weeks to complete a molt Very Happy
