I think it will be okay sometimes they survive a bad molt and just end up sligly deformed and sometimes their next molt will take it off. If it's moving okay and what not you should be fine.

what enclosure do you keep your scorplings in???
if it is a plastic one with too much ventilation then try changing to an aquarium

it is plastic but not too much ventilation.

Its horrible watching the little one struggle with his two legs stuck in some "moult".
really is horrible.
We dont want to pull or tug on the legs though.

I dont think he will make it, even at 3I he is much smaller then the other siblings.
I think they are BOTH just under developed and to have lived so long is just a miracle

dammit. Now Tiny is moulting!
Last night he looked different, lighter in colour. This morning by the head noticed something poking up. HOPED it wasnt a moult about to happen...well yes...Tiny is now moulting Sad
Im nervous!!!

Teeny *bad moult* has two legs trapped and to be honest, doesnt look healthy! I really think death is on the way. He is just sat out in the open looking sorry for himself.
Im trying not to be attached but ive nurtured them, ive saved them from siblings, given them their own little home, had crickets without heads put in.
But there is only so much I can do for them!

And now...Tiny is moulting. Fingers crossed he makes it though ok and doesnt get into trouble!

cheers CONGRATULATIONS TINY!!!!! cheers

He/she has done it! Ive been watching the process on and off and saw the last 10 minutes of the stage, I worried *as I do* but I saw the final moment of breaking free. Tiny is now resting, tail resting in the body of the moult, if he/she was to walk away it wouldnt follow.

Its just so depressing knowing Teeny probably isnt going to make it, as two natural telsonless two would be cool!

xxxxxxxxxx

I do have the camera and have just tried taking pictures of my telsonless two but it wouldnt take a picture!

You can see one of the telsonless two in the group feeding pictures. One of the telsonless ones has a massive cricket with another sibling after it.

Tiny is 100% out the moult now and "drying out"
Well done my little one. Mummy is so so proud!

very quick!
last night noticing colour change
10am this morning noticing a SMALL change in the head
and I think it all began began probably around 4:30 this after noon. I noticed at 5pm and just before 7 it was all done!
Probably slower then my others but all to be done in one day is brilliant!
Since Teeny is still dragging moult

PostSubject: Re: Scorplings   6/1/2008, 3:52 am

and then there was 18 scorplings again.
Teeny was dead this morning. I suspected it was going to happen since he had his legs curled in like a "dying spider" and this morning tail was relaxed.

We didnt do enough for him Sad Should have removed him from the hole sooner so he could have moulted properly.

Now Tiny is all alone in the tank *sighs*

I will take a picture of his body, dont know how clear it will be but maybe there was a reason to the death that someone might be able to see...but then again I think it was just a bad moult, not a complete moult which caused the death

I think that one has recovered now or at least when seeing them scatter have not noticed one moving slower.
One was also squashed but ive not seen a body and ive not noticed one with a change...so many it all plumped out again?

In the next few months I will dig up their burrows and do another head count in the tank to check numbers.
I think in the tank there is one to moult, but to be honest I think all of them have reached 3I now and thriving!

All doing really well together Very Happy

Will be feeding time again today.

Adam and I are buying a digital camera today! the one my parents lent me is running out of battery *again, they always do that!

so watch this space

have all of yours burrowed and how on earth do you dig them out of their burrows without hurting them??? i accidentally lifted a rock onto a burrow that i couldnt see and my cork bark got a good stinging. when i get slings i dont want to bury them in their burrows or worse crush them to death.

My scorplings have burrows, they did from day one. We knew the area they were in and what side, so we scooped out and removed one side. when on their side it was with a spoon and bit by bit, very slowly. We then caught them one by one into another container and then more digging etc. But it was all done very very slowly.

I have to admit im a little concerned!
Tiny's tail is all white. Surely it should have changed colour by now?

The tail, not the telson...which isnt there since Tiny is without a telson

The whole tail is white, the others never had this "problem" when they moulted into 3I

Give him a couple days just in case -- my female jacksoni was still pale for almost a week after her last molt.
