    Leave them with the mom for a while. They need to get on her back if possible. If they can't they will probably die. If you interupted the process she might have stopped for the momment. I'd leave her alone for a while and hope the rest come out okay.

    leave them on her back!!!

    she's not even done giving birth
    they haven't even molted yet either (hopefully they can)
  7. Leave them alone and let mom take care of them.
  8. What hadrurus is it?
    And as above, let her give birth in peace if not, she might cannibalise the whole lot.
    Parturition can take from a few hours to a few days.
    The "mother-child" bond is maintained by scent, if a young falls off the mom's back, she'll pick it up and help him regain its position.

    Good luck and hope they'll all pass 2nd i...

    When scorpions are giving birth there is one very simple rule;

    leave them ALONE. and leave them for a week or two afterwards as well. NEVER remove them from the mother, they will die.

    I have to disagree! there is a chance now that the op has already messed with them he needs to wait till she has the rest and remove them they will not die just because they are not on her back he will have put them in a container with a slightly moist paper towl and heat and wait it out and when they molt try to feed prekilled crix

    good luck op and keep us posted
