She was going through the motions with a male I have, I went to bed because it was taking too long and found a spermatophore the next day, but that was a few days ago, so "no", not captive bred babies though they seem easy to mate. Maybe another native taken for granted. I think if I lived in a diff country, I'd be wanting some of these pretty bad.
Still very cool. I know what you mean by our lack of appreciation of our native species. You might have a hard time moving the babies. I keep telling myself I'll start a CB breeding program on my own. I just don't have enough room.
I have a feeling that it's not important that the 1st instars hang around on the mother's back with this species. I remember another thread where the 1st instars where on the ground and molting instead of molting to 2nd instar on the mother. This 1st instar scorpling isn't on the mother's back either, though I did see it there once. Something could be off, or it could be normal. It's very mobile for being a 1st instar compared to other species, could be mistaken for a 2nd instar if I didn't know better. btw, ..just one lol, I haven't seen anymore, not yet anyway and I don't think she's eaten any.
Hey, I know its been a while since anyone posted on this tread but I was wondering how things turned out with the babies. How many were there, how many have survived, have you had success getting them to molt?
