I’ve had my Asian Forest scorpion for almost 2 weeks now. I’ve tried feeding it many times and it rejects food or runs away from it. At times it would just kill the prey and leave it. I’m assuming she’s in pre-molt. Any idea what else it could be?

Let it settle down from moving to a new home. It’s probably in stress. Try to feed it again next week.
What’s the temperatures inside the cage? Humidity?

What makes you think it is in pre-molt (besides not eating) ?
Usually you need higher temperature + higher humidity when they won't eat.

I don’t know the exact humidity but I mist it everyday and try to keep it as humid as possible. The temperature is usually room temperature 73/74 Fahrenheit.

I keep it very humid in there by misting everyday. Temperature is usually room temperature. Its exoskeleton seems to be loosening/cracking, it looks engorged, hiding more than usual even during the night, not interested in food.
