It depends. The last one to two molts of a bark scorpion may take 2-6 months, or even longer in certain situation.

If it's an adult, it'll not molt again.

I agree with Mr. I there. It looked potentially full grown to me too can you take a semi clear picture with a ruler or standard sized item beside it or held up to the glass. Determining the actual size goes a long way in determining age.

Is there any way of knowing it´s by sex looking at the pics? I don´t know how to look under them, or grab them. :S

Can't advice much on the sexing method as this species is not among my specialty. 

From what I have observed, most sexing methods performed on bark scorpions are never "under" as most would have their number of pectine teeth overlapping between male and female.

And, it's never a good idea to "grab" them, even if it means by using tongs.. especially not for reason such as this. As there's a risk of hurting the scorpion, and even yourself in the process. The scorpion might also run lose accidentally..

Don't mind me for being direct.. just being on the lookout for you.

Cheers.

+1

I believe the "key" for sexing these will be in the pedipalps as with other spp. of Tityus.

Cae85, are you able get a close-up of the pedipalps of both your specimens?

Hi, this is the best pic I was able to take, I'm having problems with my camera, so had to use my phone and I don't like putting my hands too close to them. this is the big one, the smaller one hides as soon as I get close :S
Well thanks for all the help, I hope this can be useful.
