Sorry for the bad molt. I've never experience this. Sorry I can't help.New here, I have an inperator that is stuck in a molt and not sure what to do, any advice? No vets who see scorpians around here.
Second question, backwaterreptiles has imperator and dictator for sale...are they reputable? Does anyone here sell either of these?
Backwater does have dictator, but perhaps not imperator. The last time I ordered a pair of imperators from them, the shippment turned out to be a pair of heterometrus longimanus(asian forest scorpions). I contacted them. And they comfirmed it and apologized. They told me that their shipping department had been making a mistake that all their shipped out orders for Pandinus imperator were heterometrus longimanus. Ironically, they also sell heterometrus longimanus for a much lower price. As for my order, they gave me a refund and let me keep the asian forest scorpions for free. But I'm not really interested in keeping them. Anyway, backwater is notorious for not updating their website. They just can't be bothered to fix their wrong ads online. In fact, a large portion of their listings are out of stock. I have lots of personal experience with them.
I do sell dictators myself. I have several adults and a lot of babies ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 inches.
