Hey everyone. I'm new here. I've been posting at Arachnoboards for a couple weeks now. Some of you may know me pirat. Anywho...

I'm not sure how to tell the instar of my Emp. I have a few pics here (I have big hands as I'm 6' 2", if that helps any):

The last one is in the old enclosure I had. I've had the scorp for almost 4 months now I believe. It was smaller when I bought it. I'm calling the scorp an 'it' because I'm having a difficult time sexing it b/c it's so young yet (lol)..

Thanks!!

Yeah...I know you... Welcome to SF. No ACTUAL way to tell what instar it is only a guesses can be made. I cant see the pics because I'm at work but someone else can give you a guess. They can however tell if it's a juv. or adult.

Still a juvie, and from the telson, I'd say it's one molt from adulthood (I forget at which instar emps mature).

The telson looks creamish instead of white -- any younger, and it'd be white.

So I'm assuming that this molt takes the longest?

I'll get better pics tomorrow, if I can. They're a bit blurry :\

I would say due to size, I would also say 2 more moults until maturity

I sort of agree with Connie, They will have more than 2 molts(might take several months) to become mature
