Yes, the telson is the ball at the end of the tail with the sting on it.

The reason I asked was that if it were red, then it would be mature and so molting wouldn't be a possibility. However, its not red and so it could be. Smile

During premolt the scorpion tends to become a little more inactive and will generally refuse food from a couple days before it molts right up until a couple days after it has finished molting.

one of my two emps molted. Very Happy this is the first time ive ever had a scorpion molt so im pumped, i noticed some very unusual behavior from the other emp in my tank (adult) was very aggressive more than i ve ever seen. i had moved the hide and was trying to move my emp(the one that didnt molt) so that i could replace the hide. it started lunging grabbing the tongs and was using the stinger. i was shocked i guess it knew that the other emp had molted and was vulnerable

Emps generally like to protect their tank mates during molting because as you said, they know that they are vulnerable - Pretty cool behaviour though Smile

Imma say gravid -- looks too big to not be adult.
