It's been a few months since my emp gave birth and she still has the molts of the babies stuck onto her back.
Is this normal? Or shall i remove it myself as she hasn't done so already?

I peeled 'em off my U. mordax just 'cause I felt like it . . . it shouldn't cause a problem if they're still on, though.

I will probably peel it off then just because i don't like the look of it.

one last question though, how did you peel yours off? Did you have to restrain the scorp or just peel with tweezers or something?

I just gently grasped them with forceps while she was out and about. She wasn't too happy about it, but most female scorps with a brood on the back or recently dispersed are in a grumpy mood.
