I have a little idea on the behavior of this scorpion. how long does it take for this scorpion to molt?

really depends on how often you feed it and what other external influences it has.. its age comes into it as well (i think, juvies molt more right?)

I believe from i2 to i3 takes longest. Averaging 60-110 days in Androctonus species.
Dunno where I have read it, but it could be right.
