Possibly premolt, but I can't see new tergites through the membrane . . . but definitely not pregnant.

If it's premolt, stop handling it. That will just stress it and possibly make surviving the molt more difficult.

That what it looks like. But it also needs one more molt to maturity so it'll loose its "baby fat" on the next molt.

so do hiding places alone suffice or should i be worried if my scorps dont burrow? i mean i have two sub adults in a ten gallon and there are four hiding spots but no signs of burrowing. Again i keep temps at about 88 degrees on the hotside and 78 on the cool with roughly 80 percent humidity. My cocofiber substrate is about six inches deep

Don't worry if they don't burrow.

yeah dont worry about them not burrowing. My pandinus imperator scorplings began burrowing from 2I and all the way though to 4I...and now they have stopped. Sometimes they just dont borrow. Hey, it makes for easy head counts Smile

waiting for them to moult is exactly that...waiting!
We never really know when its going to happen, you can see it happen but it doesnt mean it is about to happen any time soon Smile
Just keep the humidity up and wait it out. a good sign of PRE moult is them refusing food but SINCE they like to do that anyways...hehehehe
Just wait and see Very Happy
