    He is very young, born in january. Ive had him for under a month and i have not seen him shed yet.

    I noticed he was in the same position under his moss since yesterday will not move at all, and he has some discolouration on his wee arms. He has been eating fine.

    I dont know what to do and i dont want to loose him.

    I don't know what may be wrong with the scorpion, but are you keeping it bone dry? I say this because you are using moss.

    An expert i spoke to recommended putting a small bit of moss in the corner because of him shedding, the rest of the enclosire is dry.

    Hmm, I don't have alot experience with this species and I have never raised one. I think I will let someone else chime in. Does this expert breed or raise them?

    Unfortunately it is dead. Often, young scorpions die unexpectedly.

    I have had one of these for well over a year. I bought it as a 2i. It has not molted, has eaten maybe 5 times, is kept bone dry, and seems pretty much content. It moves around a lot, and can be pretty quick. I keep around 40 T’s, scorps, and true spiders, and my H. troglodyte is hands down the most boring specimen. All this said to suggest that the fact it didn’t molt is probably not a consideration as they are infamously slow growers.
