Very informative, greatly apprechiated.
I was snipping them off with scissors when the scorpions were little and the crix were large. I thought it was necessary so the scorpions would have live semi-active prey to attack. Other may disagree. I use pin-head crix now for my slings.Another quick question, I noticed in some of your pictures you are feeding the slings the larger size crickets with the cricket's legs pulled off. I assume you all did this yourselves. Howso, and is it necessary?
I agree....mine are doing the same! Mine had 18 babies, and they are now in a container eating like crazy, and making tunnels in the EE substrate!!i don't have any problem with my heterometrus sp.(malaysia) i have 2 females,they both had 33 babies each,they stayed with each mom and then i finally seperated them,they were doing great w/their moms,eating w/them etc. but now i have all of the babies in a seperate plastic shoebox and they are doing just as good,and eating like crazy:clap:
I was told they possibly eat the babies they think are sick or won't do well??this is rediculous....... my EMP has ate all of her young except for 2 of them. i keep it moist i keep the temp in my room at 80 degrees and theres plenty of food and water. something tells me my Emp would of done the same in the wild. she just doesnt look like a normal mother, she probably got tips from my mom. but does anyone know why she ate all and kept 2?
WOW. That is a HUGE loss I am so sorry to hear that. I would have been devistated.....my asian forest scorp was also gravid when I got her from the pet store last Feb...she gave birth in May of last year....and the babies are all still alive.....Yeah, she was pretty grown up when we got her. Thanks for the response, "glad" it's a common issue and not something I morbidly messed up.
