Great pictures. I saw my first mid-moult scorpion tonight. All these years of keeping scorpions and I've finally observed one in this state. I got so excited haha.

I've always wondered why a few species moult on their backs. Does anyone know?

well as the guys here have mentioned, the Parabuthus spp. in particular does the back-molt thingy. probably laying their backs on the sand helps in a 'smooth' way out of the old exoskeleton Very Happy

Oh wow! I have never seen the scorpion moulting process.

Why does he look so huge in the first pic? Is that what they all look like pre-moult?

How long does the moult usually take?
