Hi everyone, so glad to have found this forum! I was recently given two Carolina Bark Scorpions by a friend that wasn't exactly thrilled to find them under her refrigerator. (She knew I had been wanting one) Anyhow, about a week ago, one presented us with babies, and last night the other had babies! I'm excited over this, but worried because the only care sheets I can find are for the Arizona or striped bark scorpions, and even they are quite a bit larger than these. The adults are just over an inch long. The only feeder insects available locally are wingless fruit flies and from what I'm told they may be small enough. But when do I start offering them? The adults eat about four small (1/4") crickets a week. I don't know how long they stay with the mom. Any information would be very helpful!! Thanks in advance!!
PS I'd post a pic but not sure how..m

Try not to disturb the mother as much as possible. You don't need to feed them until they are off the mom's back. If you can crush the heads of crickets, that works too. 2nd instar scorplings will scavenge.

Ok thank you. We aren't bothering them except to make sure they have water. The one with the older babies seems to use a lot of water. Hoping we can keep these little ones alive, I know they're not the most popular of the scorpions but they fascinate me. I have an Emperor as well...hoping to get a flat rock and a desert hairy next time there's a show here.
