since my knowledge of scorpions extends no farther than the two weeks it took for my one and only emperor scorp to die on me, i didn't have a chance to see it moult. just how does a scorpion moult? does the old skin "pop" under the pressure caused by the new skin underneath (like a tarantula), or does it just peel itself out, like a banana or something? and, when the whole process is over, is the shed part recognizable and intact, or is it completely obliterated? inquiring minds want to know....
