Purchased this guy about a week ago. Was told it was a "Giant Desert H" but wanted to know if anyone here can confirm the sex. Adult hood. And current state of it now? Pre molt? And if it is indeed a giant desert hairy. Anything helps guys thanks it's pretty plump at the moment

Definitely a juvenile, and definitely looks pre molt. youll have to take a picture of the underside of your scorpion ( the pectines) then count the number of teeth. I think it's something like 20-30 teeth is a female, and 31+ is a male but that's not always accurate

really just don't mess with him. They usually have a more difficult time molting then tropical species in captivity. I wouldn't feed him and just make sure there's water in the bowl to bring up humidity slightly. best of luck!

He has a small water dish. Would explain why hese really sluggish . And denied food the other day. I'll just leave him be and pray all goes well
