I have an Adult female Asian forest scorpion (Heterometrus longimanus) that gave birth to roughly 15 scorplings. First time brood, so I gave extra care to ensure they would survive, ideal habitat, minimal handling, etc... I checked on them daily, however when the young left the mothers back 6 were found dead, 3 alive and I'm guessing mom ate the rest. The 3 survivors are healthy and have molted twice now. But is it normal for so few to survive (3 out of 15ish) or was it due to my lack of experience and not separating them in time?
