PostSubject: H.Arizonensis molt issue....help!   6/13/2008, 3:23 pm

I wish I had a camera that would take decent pictures, but the s'ling seems like it's in premolt.

tail seems to have a new tail growing underneath it, exo seems to want to crack open, telson bulb isn't hanging down like a normal stinger should when the scorp has it up. it's almost as if it's permanently stiffened in a horizontal position.

pre-molt issue? i've added a tiny bit of moisture to the enlcosure sides to raise the humidity just a tiny bit and even offered food to see if it would eat. nothing has happened and this has been an issue for a week now.

help.

just let it be. If you have multiple hides spray a tiny bit of water under on of them to OFFER them some humidity without actually forcing it on them. I have had the same problem with my S. vachoni for almost a year now it's tail is still all stiff and it has yet to molt.

Like Eddy said I would leave it alone and offer humidity areas to go. Let nature takes its course.

these can do badly anyway with moulting. I dont know what it is about the husbandry, I guess we as humans with the tank set ups cant create what nature can create for them in the wild.
Im "this close" to buying some scorplings *due in next week* but after reading so many reports of failed moulting attempts, I think im going to give it a miss.

Whats been suggested is very good. I guess all you can do is that, wait and hope for the best

Good luck scorpion!

I know. but many have been reported in captivity to not complete moults. Surely something is going wrong somewhere.

The idea of dampness under hides is really good but...surely in nature its different to the enviroment in a glass tank.

Any on here who have had one reach maturity? let me know and I will follow your lead and pick up some scorplings at the end of the month Very Happy

The problem is that people try offering humidity in different ways but none are effective because they alway mess up. Mine are doing great and all I do is occasionaly mist one hide out of three.
