I was just wonderingg when my scorplings will molt to the 3rd stage? They were born on May-26th of 2009.... so its been about 1 month and a week form the day it was born till now. but lately these days, ive been prettty anxious for it to molt~ Very Happy



btw, its a emperor scorpion.
and can someone tell me if different types of scorpions molt aprrox. to the same date as other socrpions? liek do some molt to 3rd instar faster then other types?

Dont be anxious for them to moult.
You cant time these things. They will do it when they are good and ready.
3rd instar began happening 6 weeks after 2nd instar.

Here is a link to my breeding report and how long mine took to reach 2I and then 3I

Its been over a year and I only have one pandinus imperator from that brood left. All the others just died. ramdomly.
That little one is still 4I and showing no signs of getting much bigger! If it still alive!
I think it was a faulty batch

what the mayo?!?.... that is pretty random for it to all just...die?....hmmm :/

but one other question, is that normal growth for it to be still small even after one year??? Should it be past the 4th instar by now?? and it sure does sounds swazy to me for it all to die.. Neutral

Well they take upto 2 years to mature.
I have no idea why they all died, they all just dropped down dead.
Never mind

Not enough personal experience with emps, but I know some species will molt at different rates even if from the same brood.

It just takes different times as mike says. depends on food, humidity, and the individual specimen.
