PostSubject: Molting Query   3/21/2013, 5:00 am


just curious, i know someone back in the Philippines who raised a H. hottentotta from 2i to 7i in just 3 months via continuous feeding.

now, can being fat (due to eating) be a factor in molting? If so, how long does it usually take a very fat scorp (like my p.trans) to molt?

thoughts and answers are very much welcome. thanks in advance..

cheers! scorpion

Continuous feeding could be sort of like the well known "power feeding" , to accelerate their metabolism.
Thus make them grow faster, molt faster, and get them to adulthood faster.

However, I really really believe it is not good to to this. It shortenes their Lifespan and encouraging glutinous behavior is in my opinion harmful for its health.
