Hiya guys Smile

If i uploaded a picture of my emp would someone be able to give me a rough idea of how old it is or what instar. For now all i can tell you is that its not an adult because his telson if a yellowy cream colour but his exoskeleton is a glossy jet black colour.

Thanks again for any help you can offer Smile

Sorry about the quality had to use my phone Neutral
He wasn't too happy because i needed to lift the rock up which he burrowed under.
The mealworm is just there for comparison, it's about 2cm long (curled up).
I think my emp is a sub adult but not too sure Smile

From the color of the telson and its size, I don't think its a subadult. My guess would be a 4i or 5i juvenile.

Is that enclosure, exo-terra faunarium?
If yes, my guess is that the specimen might be a 4.instar and 3 molts to go before maturity.
