 Molting?

Iíve never seen a scorpion molt, and I need help. How do emperor scorpions molt? Do they do anything before hand so I can tell that it will molt soon? How long does it take? Iím, totally clueless right now. And can you tell how old they are by how many times they molt? I donít know how old mine is and I was just wondering if I can tell. I need as much info on molting as I can.

 Molting?

You can tell an Emp is getting close to Molt because there will be more pinkish gray on it`s body than Black. Also, the old exo skeleton becomes very transparent. A good Molt should only take a couple hours during the Night. I have only had one Emp that was still Molting in the Morning that lived through it. If it takes too long, they get weak & die. So, It`s best to find a shiny black Baby and an empty skin the next day. Rayna :-)
