I previously posted some success I had with captive born and bred Hadrurus arizonensis and wanted to share an update. I'm actually preparing to mate a couple more females as this is when they were bred last year with success.

Here is the link to the first thread:
http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=186170

I had two females give birth. The first brood had some trouble with shedding. With the second female still gravid at the time, I wet her enclosure down pretty good to bump up the burrow humidity. All of the second female's babies shed perfectly. I think these scorps can handle and require higher humidity in their burrows than one may believe.

Here's some pics of the 2i...they're doing great...

Cool, yeah this is the thread I was thinking of where I saw the scorpling on it's back, it looks like it molted there, not while on the mother. I have a female with one scorpling but walking around on the substrate at 1st instar in the chamber instead of being on the mother, maybe it's normal:? It looks like this might not be as hard as all the stuff we've heard about. Mine mated immediately. The dudes look nice and healthy there.
