I had one go 4 months teehee and she still didnt feed on her young.
Just leave her and the babies alone for 2 weeks. Dont bother her. Just stay away and in 2 weeks go and do a head count Smile

not quite 30 more like 2!!!!! Crying or Very sad
i give that scorpion the best 11months of my life and it only manages to produce two babies
so if i lose one baby that's half the brood gone (bad times)
although i am a bit pressed for space at the mo so could be a blessing in disguise, i will just have to try my best to keep em both alive
managed to sneak a pic whilst bumping up the humidity

it might still produce more young. if you were interupting it or something happened it may have postponed the birth..

As S111 said, there could be more on the way. She looks awful pudgy still.

Thats great to hear.Im glad you kept track the the whole thing.I also have a gravid female that mated Sep 5th.

I was searching around the net for gestation periods.Everyplace I found said either 9 months or 19 months.So its good to hear it took your Emp 11 months.

I was wondering if you would share your feeding patterns and tank temps?

Thanks

for the first 6-8 months of gestation feeding was 1-2 per week
then her appetite really picked up and she ate like a horse for a month or two then stopped eating until birth
temps along with humidity were high, 90%+ in her hide and temps were up in the 30s during the day
what she did do about 8 months in is she destroyed her very lovely burrow and built a new one closer to the heat source Smile
hope this helps
but still only 2 babies

Thanks for the info.My emp is 5 months in.Month 2-3 she did tons of stillting and tipping her body dif angles outside her hide. I have pics if anyone wants to see.

Last 2 months she's been in her burrow pressed up against the side of the tank where the heat mat is.

Cant wait for her to pop ope its only about 6 months away

Strange . . . Suspect

At least the pair made it.

Post a breeding report if you like, to let hobbyists know that sometimes this sort of brood can occur.
