    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.
     
  11. You can mist the scorpions on a nightly basis or give them a small shallow water dish so they can climb out.

    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! ;)

    Scorpion broods can be quite large! Even for small species. Here, example. My Pseudouroctonus santarita with a massive amount of babies on her back:
