Stupid question but my centipedes eat theirs so I'm just checking to make sure. Also, my scorpion just molted! It hadn't eaten for at least a month but was oddly fat for someone who's fasting. I was about to create a thread here to ask but it molted and now everything is alright. I thought it was already an adult as it was quite large but surprise, surprise!

I've never witnessed any of my scorps eat theirs. I usually take the molts out after a week or two or when I'm in there doing the next feeding/cleaning. My scorps aren't exactly hurting for food though lol.

Never seen this and have kept near on thousands. Crickets and roaches left in the cage will eat the moult however.
