    2nd pic female 3rd pic 100% male ...the first pic I'm guessing female but not too sure. The males tail will be MUCH longer and curls up more and their body's are slender compared to females

    Since I just got them out of the wild when should I start feeding them?

    Try feeding them every couple of days. Especially if you keep them all together

    I haven't started keeping them together because such of a size difference. I was gonna wait till the smaller ones get better

    Can scorps get their water from their food,or do they need a water dish?

    They can get most of it from food but it's always good to mist or lightly spray the walls of the enclosure they will drink the water drops. Don't provide a water dish for the small ones. Their is a risk of drowning

    I fed my large female, and tried to feed my small female but she wouldn't eat, I came back a few hours later and she had moulted.
