PostSubject: Problems with H. Laoticus   2/16/2008, 9:10 pm

Hello! My Heterometrus laoticus gave birth this week, but is eating some of the pups, because you have more experience with these scorpions than we do here in Brazil, what I could do to stop it eat the pups?
Separate in the first ecdise?
Excuse the bad English, I am not very good with that language rsrsrs

If she's eating them, it means one of three things:

The babies weren't healthy (stillborn)
She's not in ideal conditions for them to live (i.e., too dry)
She felt stressed (maybe if you were checking her too often)

I'd suggest making sure it's warm and humid, and just leaving her alone. Good luck with the rest of her babies.

Thread moved to Beginner Scorpion section.

Thanks

Im sorry she is eating them Sad I know what you are going though because what's happening to you is my fear!

If they came out one by one and she has been eating them like that it makes me wonder why she gave birth if she didnt like the conditions or felt stressed!

if its stress then try not to look. I know im a fine one to talk because the first few days I was always sneeking in the room to have a peek in though the sides. But if you keep seeing it happen its just going to upset you.

If some make it, they make it but right about now they wouldnt survive without mummy to look after them. Sadly mummy is the one they need protecting from! Sad

If you still have the male, you can always try mating them again

If conditions are good, then just leave her alone. She might have just had a few stillborns -- leave her be for a week or so and see what happens.

Hi Connie!!! it is really sad to see that to happen, but she was eating just some, and not all.
the cage was at a place where had a lot of movement, but I already changed that. The male is separate, but with certainty he copulates again.

IHeartMantids, is what I will do, the problem is that had never reproduced that species, because it is not very common the Brazilian creators to have those you encourage.
Here we have a lot of species of great load that are easier to get.

Obs: será que sou o único brazuca aqui???? Mais um podia dar o ar da graça né!!! Very Happy

Just wait it out for a week. Just see how many are there in a week. If the ones that are still alive at the moment are alive in a week then already things will be looking good!

With certainty, they were not many that I lost, about 15 they still remained, I don't only place here pictures, because of the stress, to avoid to lose more.
I am curious! They understood what I am speaking here? Rsrsrsrsrs
My english is not very good No

The translator (or your own English) you're using works well enough that we can understand. Smile

If she still has 15, that's good. Just leave her be for one or two weeks. It sounds like she had some dead babies and just ate those.

Good luck!

It is a male of Tityus fasciolatus, I already worked with Tityus serrulatus and bahiensis, difficult to happen accidents with those you encourage!!!
Actually I am herpetologist, work with serpents, spiders and scorpions are just a hobby
