 Stupid question but would like to know...

Is there any way to tell the age of a scorpion? I doubt it, but it never hurts to ask...

Well "hatch" would mean they come from eggs lol, but if you see them from birth thats one. Also if their exoskeleton is scratched then that means they are past their last molt, with emps. is a few years and they live about 7 years in captivity.

U can tell by size as well, 5-6 inches is a about a adult males size and females can be 6-8 inches. The biggest i saw was 9 inches, it was really weird and the place i got mine from said it was the biggest they have ever seen.

please disregard the above, many species are much smaller than that, and that wouldnt tell you the age, especially in wild caught specimens.
