My emperor scorpion just gave birth and I am soooo happy. I can't get pics though because my parents would find out. But I have question. They baby scorpions are under the female and so far there isn't too many young (like 5) so is it possible she is in the process of giving birth?

Thats quite possibly the funniest thing I've seen on AB's. Congrats though, I know you have been waiting. As for you parents...they will have to find out sometime. Try to win your mother over by telling her anything that takes 12 months to gestate and can spit out 10 young in a day deserves her respect, lol.

lol
I told my parents when I bought it, that it was a boy :D. I won't let my parents find out because as soon as there old enough there getting sent to my grandma's house (which is a block away). I bought all the stuff i need and brought it over there. I will probably be over her house every day :D. I know if my parents found out they would kill me and baby scorpions.

Do scorpions give birth to ten a day? I thought they did it right at once. Does that mean by tommorrow there could be ten more?

They can take up to a day or more to give birth. Wait a few days, don't stress her out.

I think I stressed out my scorpion too much yesterday, because there is only one scorp on her back and she ate the rest. :( I'm not gonna look at her for the next 4 days. she's still pretty fat so i hope she gives birth to more

Make sure the humidity is kept up. In my experience scorpions consume their young when environmental conditions are not right.

and make sure there is no food in there, the slings have enough in them to survive without food. If they're all gone except for one I wouldn't expect too much. Personally I would have thrown a towel over the enclosure to prevent distress from the light and generally avoided making vibrations around the area.

The humidity is up, i don't know the exact percentage. The last time i saw her she had three on her back, so i hope she's giving birth to more.

They don't act and you shouldn't be looking at them anyways. Takes about 2 weeks to molt to I2... You need to stop asking, do some searching and start reading.

I've been doing research on the same scorpion for over a year! All I did was look through sites, read books, ect.. It was only about three months ago did I ask my first question about scorpions. I'm sorry that I found that the only way to get answers is to first have a question.
