I have night lights on each of the shelves for my Ts & scorpions. I have them on when Im feeding, just looking at them or have clients here. Whenever they are on, my C.Sculps cluster under it. When its off, they go under their branches to hang out until its night. Why are they attracted to the light? Are they cold? Kim

More likely they are cold.

They're from Arizona, which is warm, and you're in Oregon, which is not.

So yeah, probably enjoying the temporary warm spot. Smile

Thanks for the info. I will see what I can do for some heat. 2 more females giving birth right now. Very interesting to watch. Kim

I'm jealous . . . I've had at least nine broods in my care, but have never gotten to see the actual process. (Well, I sort of caught one in the middle, but I couldn't see much from the angle mom was at.)

i am sure the warmth would be beneficial, but they can't be too miserable if giving birth!

I have one female who has them on her back. The other one, I dont know. I saw her walking around for about an hour last night with them hanging from her mouth & then I saw one of the males eating one. I got up early this A.M to get the light on so they could cluster under it so I could do a head count & pull the females out. Kim

Probably best to have the gravid females in their own tanks. Sorry to hear about the lost brood Sad.

#1 & #2 are doing great. #1s babies are mostly on her back still but 2 have come off. Do I take the 2 out & place them in their own containers now or wait until all of them come off? Kim

The choice is yours. I've never separated Centruroides, but with others, I would wait until almost all were off the female's back. Then I'd remove her with the few that were left on her back, separate all the young who had left her back, and by then most of the commotion made the remainder come off so they could be separated.
