I'm not sure what a normal molt gap is for this species but in less than a month it has molted twice. My guess it is an adult now.

Possibly, but I doubt it. It was MONTHS with my female between her last two molts, and her tail looked a lot bulkier.

Do you have a male to compare to? Subadult females are about the same size as an adult male, but adult females are distinctly larger.

Well she might not be an adult yet. She is about the same size as a adult female C. sculpturatus. I am just surprised at how quickly she molted again.

i kinda surprized , but then again i am not. Cuz my smaller Lq just molted out to 4th instar and the last molt before that was 4 weeks ago. Never had a scorpion that molted that close together. Now i had plenty of T slings done this in a 3 weeks span

i had a friend who had a couple of these!
one sadly died not long after he brought them home...and one lived for a while, but then rather pointlessly died.

i would love to get these as they are a gorgeous scorpions, and communal!
but bloody licensing laws!!!

yours are gorgeous!

Adult pair; notice the size difference and the bulk of the female's metasoma:


Adult female compared to molt; note the impressive increase in bulk:
