i have some malaysian heterometrus sp.(females) for sometime now,so 1 of them had babies 33,or so i thought,so i seperated the 33 babies fed them and sold them(too many to keep) to a friend, anyway i was feeding all of my inverts. that takes forever and what do i see? the mother was holding 2 crickets in each of her claws and 2 babies(that i didn't see in there:wall: though i got them all out) were feasting on each cricket that she was holding,it was very interesting to see that,she was eating 1 aswell,she doesn't bother the babies at all.they hang out w/her,so i'm gonna just keep em w/her for now,they darkening up too.ive raised baby emps w/moms and never had any problems they grew up w/mom,so i'm thinking heterometrus are good parents too. well see just wanted to share.
