^She may refuse food, especially as she's getting close. If that's the case, just take it out after a day or two.

When she does pop, she won't need to eat with the babies on her back, so don't worry about feeding her then, either.

offer her a meal about a week after they are born.
when the babies come of her back you can offer them headless crickets. they must be headless because they will still be soft enough for the crickets to snack on.

if you can feed them small cockroaches this will save you a lot of worry about removing them because they wont touch your scorps so can stay in there forever! or until they become lunch! Razz

you can offer her a meal but she most likely wont eat it. Both my females that have birthed, Pandinus Imperator and Heterometrus Laoticus both didnt eat.

My Heterometrus Laoticus only killed the food and offered it to her young. She didnt eat for a LONG time after the birth...maybe about 3-4 weeks after the birth before she took her own meal.

If she isn't cracked or bleeding anywhere, then she should be fine.

Babies at that stage would be awful squishy and should be able to absorb impact fine.

I'm guessing female, due to the shape of the operculum, the pectinal teeth seem kinda long though. but, still guessing female.

Most definitely female. In most males I see, the pectine teeth come very close to reaching (if not overlapping) the first pair of booklungs.

if she is infact not expanding nor staying the same then she isnt or wasnt pregnant.
She COULD have been but they all died inside OR she was just fat from a big feed and is now returning to normal size

Same family though, Kejser. Either way, to the best of my knowledge, both genera are close enough that they can be sexed the same way.
