Might be male. Not sure yet
I guess I have 2 males and 1 female now
Yea looks male
Here's a chart
I'm a father ,my big female gave birth! What do I do?
Do I feed her still?
Nevermind I read another post that helped me,just wait till they come off her back,after separated feed her.
Very nice! I am in the range for collecting Centruroides vittatus here in Oklahoma. Congrats on the female giving birth! Definitely feed the female when she has the babies on her back, lest she be tempted to have a portable snack! haha. As for the others, keep an eye on them if they are not in their final instar. I had what I thought was a 1.3 trio. Turned out to be 4.0, just a few juveniles which had not reached their final instar. You will know when they mature. There is a pretty decent size difference.
You can mist the scorpions on a nightly basis or give them a small shallow water dish so they can climb out.
So I do still feed her?
The babies look like they went through their first molt,they don't look soft anymore.
Definitely feed her. If you don't and she gets hungry, she will not hesitate to snack on the babies!
Babies after molting
I'm surprised how many babies she had,theirs at least 30 or more.
Scorpion broods can be quite large! Even for small species. Here, example. My Pseudouroctonus santarita with a massive amount of babies on her back:
Holy S***...its same with Euscorpius spp. :-D...small scorpion but there can be so much inside!!
Beautiful Euscorpius! Which species? I keep E. tauricus, and she is about to give birth!
This was Euscorpius sicanus from Sicilia
