Lookin' Good!

and yeah...let one side of the cage dry out and mist the other side. I mist mine once a week. And give them a piece of bark to climb up onto to molt.

That fat one is getting close to molting...

They look happy! I'm glad you like them...

In my rush to get them in their new homes I got some of them on the "damp" side. :wall:

And "that fat one" should also be called "that piggy one" it ate 3 roaches overnight

Well here is another pic of the same scorp (Commonly referred to as "Dave" by a friend of mine) after it molted to 3I today; exactly 60 days from last molt. This group of youngins started to molt on the 8th and one or two a day are molting.

60 Days for a barkie to molt! Wow. I've gotten species to molt from 2 to 5 in that time, haha. None the less though R junceus are a great species and well worth the wait. Congrats bro. :clap: I think a lot of us always enjoy posts involving this species, so feel free to give us tons of updates. ;)

Best,

Ed
