not eating and huge is a good start. But when the molting process may begin, they sometimes sit in there burrow or they may come out and look for things to get it off with. You can tell when they are done very easily.

When they are done, you will see the old exoskeleton sitting in there with them. They will look a little lighter and kind of "waxy" in appearance until the new exo hardens.

As far as before, yes, they will look hugely fat, they may hide, not eat, etc. I have one that I have thought was going to start molting for several weeks now, and nothing yet. It isn't an exact science. Smile

they say the happiest scorps remain hidden so?

Me too, I have a 4i emperor that has been in premolt now for quite a while and is huge! Last week she refused food and so I got excited, but she has eaten twice since then. But ah well, she will molt eventually. Smile
