yeah there is no reason to keep em together so seperate, and trying to remove the male may stress the female if shes heavily pregnant

How close do you think she is?
Mine before the male died would push him out the hide it was then 4 months after his death that she birthed.

After he died I noticed she was performing the birth basket but again it wasnt until another 2 months when she did that and then 2 months later babies...
And my male died BEFORE i even knew she was gravid! She was still slimish!
After he died that was when she began to expand and even though I thought she was just full, it was only when she didnt feed and got bigger and became agressive to even ME that I knew something was happening but wasnt sure...until 1 morning she was covered in babies!

If you find scorps near where you're at, don't keep 'em toghether -- P. boreus are pretty cannibalistic.

Just try to mimic the habitat you've found them in. They're typically from dry, cooler areas at high elevation. I had one but not for very long; it was quite feisty and often dug out shallow scrapes under hides.
