    I just separated a group of 12 baby (2nd instar) V. Carolinianus into one enclosure with the hopes of raising them together. They are in a Hobby Lobby hot wheel display case enclosure with eco earth and a few pieces of bark as a hide. Does anyone here have any tips or things I should look out for? I've had adults in a communal setup with no problems in the past but this is my first attempt at raising scorplings.

    I believe they're somewhat cannibalistic at that stage, so make sure they have plenty of food at all times. I'd probably put in as many hiding spots as possible too.

    Until they are adults, they are extremely cannibalistic like Tyler said. Most scorpions tend to only eat their siblings after molting or if they are desperate for food. Vaejovis carolinianus does not discriminate and will eat each other with plentiful food around.
