    Ehh, that was probably a big mistake if they are still 1st instar.

    It's normal for the mother to eat a few scorplings. What instar are these scorpions?

    either way, this species is quite hard to breed in captivity. Good luck..

    That's gonna be tough. The standard answer I've recieved for similar issues is separate them 1 to a delicup with a moist papertowel in each delicup (moist, not dripping wet). Keep them room temp or so until they molt keeping the papertowels moist. These guys are purported to be very difficult to get through the early instars and with mommy dead it's gonna be tough. They don't eat prey until after they molt and then give them a week or so for their exoskeletons to harden before you feed them cut up crickets. Good luck.

    And I want EVERYONE to know just because you remove them from their mommas back DOES NOT mean they will die!! They mainly stay on the mothers back in the wild to be protected from preditors.. Removing them from the mother might be a good thimg since this SP. is quick to eat its young..
    I had some C. vittatus that I removed from the mother the day they were born.. I was a Newbie and was told that the mother will wat them I was like NOOO and I sat and watch her have them and as soon as she was done I removed them and the babies are still alive and kicking.. All 23 of them!!
     
  10. Awe, what little cuties!!!! Good luck

    Congrats on the brood, and good luck with it. Hopefully everything will work out. Keep us posted on how they are doing and when they molt.

    I would just keep them like you would 1st instar spiderlings. Should be about the same I would think. just my 2 cents.

    Good luck on raising them. It's nearly impossible to get them past one or two instars.

    Only one or two people that have ever been on AB have managed to raise them to adulthood.

    Any care tips will help me tremendously. Do they eat b4 the first molt or do they have to molt then eat?? We are going on 4 weeks now not eating! Should I worry? They look healthy but still pale if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears thanx :)
    (I'm gr8 with Tarantulas just getting into the scorpions)

    I dont know about Desert Hairys but my C.vittatus scorplings didnt eat till they molted into their second instar.. Even then it was about a week or 2 after they had molted... I just dropped them pre-killed small crickets and then finally they went to town on munching that down..
