Hey every one What a Face

Well I as many have bought a gravid female and it has been some time since the little live were exposed to me and as my topic states 1st or 2nd in-star is my first question.

Is the berthing the 1st in-star or the actual first molt? My research has stated its the berthing but hey why not ask right!!

My main question is, the two babies that have lived (sadly 22 didn't) have molted 4 and 5(or 5-6) times and it has been close to equal time with both of them. One molted then week ish the other molted. Now I moved them to a different tank (sept 16th) and one molted that night. Well the other one is a blimp (like they do) but has yet to "catch up" to its sibling. Do males an females have a different growth rate the older they get? The one that molted is half too two thirds moms size and I think 2 more molt to be equal.

I know you will ask for pic and I will if I remember photo buckets sign etc lol Razz

All habitat set proper, babies LOVE to dig!! Mom didn't till babies started a tunnel cyclops

Thanks pplz

welcome to the forum Smile

birth is 1st instar and after there first molt they will be second Smile

they can all molt at different rates like we currently have 15 baby emps 2 are much much smaller than the rest and no where near molting while the rest are starting to molt already...also had this with some madras babies we had 3 molted at a different rate to the other two no idea why...maybe the slower ones hadnt managed to get as much food or something i dunno Smile

Cool tans for the quick answer about the instar. Funny thing Baby Molted last night What a Face

I took the baby out ( FAT AS little bugger too) Put it in a small container right near the heat lamp. I wonder if the heat under substrate was to low. The room is 25 constant for all my kids and in nature under the soil is cooler.... :scorp:

Well Baby molted and both are in the 6th instar and I expect 1 to 2 more but this one that just molted may be larger then its sibling... cheers

Can't wait to see the difference!

This Is Momma Scarlet

This is both the Babies. Obviously you can see the one that just molted and How much larger she is.

Chillin out hardening my new body What a Face

She is much larger then the other and I wonder if the other is a brother

This guy molt to the same instar as above a month a 3 days earlier, previous molts were a week apart

The stinger of the older kid

Older kid again


I will take more time taking pic's but I want to share NOW Viking
I have the molt drying and will add pic to see if she can be sexed yet

Yes, i've read. Maybe i shld say "re-register" photobucket if you can't remember your sign-in details.

Nice pics. Hope you did add more moisture after the above photos are taken..
As a gauge, the moisture level of the substrate should be like those which are under the newly molted Emp (of darker brown. Refer to your posted pic #3 & 4)

The scorp with this aculus



did that just molt ? or is it harden up? because i belive it to be a adult, see the orthers have a white aculus when they are young ones, but adults have a brown on, when we are talking about emps. If that things turns anymore brown, it adult

Allso it wouldnt harm your emps to up the humidty abit, they look abit dry on the surface of your bedding, for emps the perfect moisture is when you can pick up a handfull of dirt, squees it and 1-2 drops of water will come out..

Its wet/very moist, just the top 2-3 mill dry that why you can see the moist substrate under the newly molt kid, room is 60-75%

The one you say is adult molted sept 16th half the size of mom so I think one or 2 more molts, they were born march 22nd so I cant see it being adult and its aculus is not as dark or brown as moms. After every molt its white but from the 3rd instar up they have been darkening up. Its about -5 inches and the other,new molt, 5 ish
