Yes, everything is ok. They've made it to second instar.

Give them a few more days to harden up, and then you can start feeding them (and separating them if you so choose).

that is a very small hide for her.
What you need is some cork bark for her to really get under and hide from the light

Still better than nothing. She was comfortable enough to not eat many young, and they made it to second instar.

Junshern, you're pretty much out of the woods now. Do you have a blacklight? If you do, you'll know the babies are ready for food when they glow under it (if they're still too soft, they won't glow).

It's you're choice to A) keep them with mom, B) put them together in a different enclosure, or C) keep them all in separate enclosures.

A is the easiest, A and B both have some risk of cannibalism, and C is the most difficult but it's the best for monitoring the health of every scorpling.

Connie, in Malaysia we don't use heat light
From my experience, Option A and B is very risky of them being cannibalize
Option C is the best as we can ensure each of them have eaten
Usually u guys keep them communally?

I meant natural light. I never have a light over my scorpions.

I keep my scorpions communally. My pandinus and my het babies will be seperated from mum very soon and into their own group

since they are animals that in the wild would not be out during the day and come out at night...they have no eyelids so I would think as much as they can handle natural light, they probably want to be able to get into the dark since this is how they would naturally be found..hiding in the dark somewhere.

They can handle live food. small crickets would be fine. if you have one in each container you can truely monitor who is eating what.
If you want you could also get a cricket, kill it...eugh...we chopped off head and then offered that for the first few feeds and then we moved onto live food. and they handle that fine

headcrush the crickets, so they can't bite, they just sorta... wiggle around. that's what I did with my early instars, they seem more attracted to half dead cricket than completely dead ones.

they will share food items.

I had 19 pandinus 2I babies. each feed I head crushed (chopping off head still causes them to move for at least 30 minutes after death, so appealing to scorpions) and I would pop in about 10 killed crickets...and they would feed all together.

After that they had whatever size cricket hahahaha

But if a shop sells big crickets they should ALSO have in the breeding process small crickets to sell

I went for option B for my emps and H. longimanus -- had a few cannibalisms. I went for option C for my U. mordax and like being able to check on each scorpion and monitor their progress.

Cricket drumsticks should be ok. I'd try headcrushing a cricket and offering that.

Scorpions are nocturnal and these are burrowing species, so they tend to avoid light. If there's too much they'll just hide or dig out a burrow.

Put it in an isolated container with no substrate (just paper towels) and a water dish.

Find some predatory mites (little specks that run around, either in other tanks or outside) and put them in with it.

It's a female, by the way.

predatory mites, they are like the bad mites but a bit larger, and they MOVE, unlike the parasitic species which clamp onto a feeding spot and don't move. they feed on the bad mites.
