Quality would of been better if the plastic container wasn't so foggy, I didn't want to disturb the processby opening her enclosure up. Itís truly amazing how this species has evolved to use gravity assist for molts they almost always molt facing down on a bark. My T.stigmurus used to molt under the bark for their first few molts now they are bigger and heavier they use the same method of upside down bark molting. In this case the R. junceus molted in about half hour, not bad at all.

I love the color it has right now. I wish my Babycurus jacksoni would just molt already. He's such a fat lil' guy.

you know these both molted this week after accidentally disconnecting their heat source. Maybe a cooling period helps they've been off heat for a week.

I don't heat my Babycurus jacksoni. Maybe I should?

I heated my B. Jacksoni with a back heating pad under their enclosures, kept a quarter, or so, of the substrate moist. Kept a vertical piece of bark and a stone (for them to cool themselves on)...they molted like crazy. Their is an old thread of the exact set up. They are a great species for sure.

Had another molt, I forgot to upload the pics from the H.judaicus molt those will be up shortly but enjoy these for now



And the most recently molted buddy coming to check up on him.


Funny I had mentioned in all the years of keeping scorps I've never seen any in mid molt and these past two months I've caught 3 (4 if you count the telson still in the old exo)

Mine still hasn't molted yet. Its pretty active and I'm always checking it out, and its looking pretty plump. What should I do Ed?

Well you haven't posted any pictures of your setup. You saw my enclosure i keep it moist and DIRECTLY on top of a 5 Gallon heatpad. So it's pretty hot and humid in there. And I switched over to crickets they dont seem to like the roaches. Thats pretty much it. Pretty easy species.

Its in its deli cup still... I should probably redo its enclosure. Need to make sure no spiders get in there this time.

The pics are great Eddy. Because the scorpions are so bright you can actually see them through the exuvia. Man, invertebrates are weird.
