Looks more like a Sarax sp., Banshee should be able to ID it better :)

Hey guys just thought i would like to correct myself :). I foolishly mistaken mine for a baby whipscorpion:8o. I think it is an adult female with eggs...I thought it was fat, but when i was observing it eat, it actually had a lot of ball-like things stuck together and its abdomen was actually flat and raised, does this mean she is pregnant? Sorry for my ignorance, this is my first time keeping a whip scorpions :8o.

Most likely, Sarax sp. are very small :)
Banshee has a photo of a Sarax sp. which measures 5-7mm at adult :)
