I just got a question in my head and haven't found an answer yet.. Once Emps reach maturity, do they molt ever again or is it the end of the road? Mine is an adult male, telson is reddish brown and I'm so curious about this because the "informed" person working at the pet shop said he has a couple more molts to go. I can get pictures up if needed.

There are no extra molts in scorpions after they reach maturity. Don't trust pet store's information Smile

And yet again I'm not surprised, another sales pitch. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

^^

depends of the species and (can) depend on the sex. I belive females sometimes have a moult more than a male.
