So my heterometrus gave birth to about 20 scorplings after a cage upgrade the other day, it was one of those anomaly births and I wasnt expecting it at all so I’ve been cramming information on taking care of them the last few days. I had a cave stuffed with moss and dirt but she chose to cram herself between the glass and the cave, which was also filled with moss to keep her out. Her back is facing the glass so I have a pretty good view of them (I cover the glass so its dark enough now). Theres this one that has been inching his way up the glass all day, he got up to the top so I let him climb on to a paintbrush and tried to put him back in the burrow, she almost pinched him, idk if she realised it was her baby cause now its just sitting on her claw no problem, he seems really determined to get up and I dont really want to risk her eating him by putting him back. I have some moist containers set up for emergencies but maybe I should just leave it alone. Any advice on getting them through these next few weeks would be nice, I’m pretty new at this. Ive only had her for a few months & she lives in a ten gallon but before that she was in a cricket keeper with no burrow at the pet store.
