I've been hearing all kinds of racket from my scorpion tanks over the last few days. I thought that it was my Rhopalurus junceus tank, i just reintroduced a female to the group after she had a brood. To my surprise it was coming from my hottentotta judaicus tank. When removed the lid I saw a 2i baby sitting on mom's back. I removed 3 from the tank and there are at least 2-3 more that are hiding in the cork. The thing that surprises me is that she just had babies in mid Dec. That would make about 60-70 days between broods. I've been breeding these guys for a while and this is by far the fastest any of my girls have been able to produce a brood. Usually it's more like 120+ days for me. I know that their can be a lot of variance between indiviuals based on food, temps, ect, but really that seems way to fast. Anyways I was totaly surprised and unprepared.
