PostSubject: Heterometrus spinifer babies   3/2/2008, 4:28 am

Almost a month ago,me Het gave birth to many young.They stayed on her back for a long time bu thne they started walking like mad in her burrow.As they are still in her burrow,when I put a light form the terrarium's side I can see them walking all over the burrow,but when they see the light they immediately go to their mum.They are sort of whitish,they eat half dead crix and very active and have fully developped legs.Shoul I dig them up and ut them in little boxes?

Maybe wait a little while longer before digging them up since they are running to mum for safety, maybe a little bit longer and they will look after themselves more

It's fine to leave them with mom for now. They're at a stage where it's safe to separate them (they can be housed together), but it sounds like it would be too much of a hassle. I've known people to keep baby forest scorps with mom for the whole time without any problems.

You have removed them from the mother?

19 sounds about right, pandinus can have about 8-20 so Im sure for yours its a good number. The more the better! Very Happy

I have been feeding mine crickets with their heads cut off. That way no risk to them and its still moving to get their attention. I pop in about two-three crickets. Was going to do mine every other day but have forgotten, will feed mine tonight.
I like how they get all round and full bellied.

Nineteen is a great number; avoid feeding mealworms fulltime as they're on the fatty side. If you offer crickets just headcrush them and leave them twitching. Feed as often as they'll eat, but remove uneaten prey after a day or so. And don't panic if anyone quits eating for a few weeks.

Y'know, the basics. Smile And it's safe to house the babies together.

just watch how fat they get, if they get too fat just keep abit low with food, then just feed them up again.. works pretty good Very Happy

What I meant was, if they take prey, then feed them. If they ignore prey, don't feed them (try again later). Smile
