I really like the granulation on that species. I'm glad you posted on these though, I'm putting out a question to you and to the other members here on the boards who raise this species. Is it normal to have a high mortality rate on these scorplings. After almost a year my mortality rate is 60%, the majority being is the first few instars.
What I've noticed and I remember being blatently (spc on that) told, "Enjoy them while they last." Though mine have lasted for so long I think I remembering reading that it is fairly difficult to get them up to adults, due to mortalitly. I had started with 6 and now only have 3. 2 are maturing fairly fast while the other still remains in it's 3rd instar, (others are in 4th).
Well then is it not obvious? I read both of their post (which I thought were two different pages :} And was thinking...Wow did he duplicate it?)... But What I have done with my C. Margs. is kept them all seperate. I use to have two to a container, about 3"x3" With plenty of hides, but like BrianS said, they just seem to all know when one molts and just wanna eat`m. I've seperated them now and they all seem to be doing just fine. I am however waiting for them to reach their full maturity and then place them back in with one another. It was funny, I remember being told these scorpions were communal. :?
