It is not possible that it came from outside. And i dug the whole terrarium and couldnt find any more....I really have no idea what it is. And it wasnt alive when i found it. Aliens? :)

I dont think mine came from outside either. What do you mean alive? did you crack it open?

Normally they hatch the second they are layed and eat their egg sac leaving no remains, sometimes scorps can squeeze the female a bit too hard, actually squeezing the ootheca out of her.
