PostSubject: A total SHOCK!!   5/27/2009, 8:19 am

This morn woke up and check on me gravid female.. was wondering when will she pop...but i see was she dig her hole much bigger and deeper than usual.. Kinda strange to me to why shes doing this. never see her with that behavior. Then i left for work..

came back for lunch and again take a look at her.. and then....



*&^$%^$&^$@(* HURAYYYYYY!!!! the long awaited moment of my life.. she gave birth.. at that time i only see 1 (skipped work to stay and see her progress) then see 6 and just now when the pic is taken 8.. expecting more to come in the next few hours.. now i have to prepare its enclosure.. i was thingking of letting some with mother after 2i and some individually and some communally.. waht do you guys think.. any advice to cut the loss of scopling deaths...
iam the happiest man alive now..

Congrats on the brood it all seems to be all happening now! what is it, a spinifer?

Don't do nothing for at least two weeks but i would make sure the substrate is a lot more damp than it looks. Pour some water in there!

More concerned about the first molt. Waste of time spraying it just pour in a load of water without disturbing her and the babies

If you go down the spraying route, you'll be spraying it heavily every day which is too much disturbance for a new brood. They should shed to 2i within a week

Leon is right, just poor water on the substrate carefully. the less hands on you are right now the better Very Happy

Congrats on the new brood.

If you want to minimize scorpion deaths, house them all separately. Even hets succumb to a bit of sibling cannibalism, and if they're separate, you can also make sure each gets their fair share of food.

I'd put them in a juvenile community, myself, but you said you wanted to minimize deaths. Smile

i do want to minimize death... people advice me when they reach 2i, separate them from their mother and separate them from their siblings.. so 1 scorpling per enclosure... but i wanted to experiment as some say they grew much faster with their mum and some with a community.. so let see how much brood i got then multiply them.. but mostly i will separate each of them..waht do u think?

I don't see how where they're housed could make any difference on growth rate, so long as feeding and temperature is the same. In fact, I'd suspect they'd grow slower in a community, because it's not guaranteed that they'll catch any prey.

I believe he said so because i once share this link with him in another forum
http://venomlist.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=23373

According to the thread starter they grow faster being house communally
I guess its worth for an experiment
50% separate 50% individual
Since he got 1more gravid female :p

yeah i do have a new gravid female.. most probably she will give birth for another 3-5 more months... or less.. so i shall divide the scorplings into two parts. one living with mother and one individually. And we shall see how truth is the report.

After reading the link, I bet part of it had to do with mom giving the young prey . . . if she offered them more than Jeroen was giving the separated young.

Anywho, good luck with the brood. Very Happy

Best thing for survival is to cover the front with a towel and IGNORE them. I know its hard but ignore them and mother for 7 days. every other day gently open to pour in water
