I have wanted this species for a while now but can't have it due to the DWA but awesome looking babies.

Thanks man. Sorry to hear about the DWA; I was fortunate to get this one and had no idea she was gravid. I went to change her to a better habitat and found this. I hope Mr. M can give me guidance on this species and her new ones.

That's a heck of an accomplishment for your first brood! Shocked These guys are pretty uncommon in the hobby.

Well, since you asked Wink, as with all scorps just leave her be till the babies start to wander. When they leave her and start to fluoresce, you can separate them. House them individually and give them a piece of vertical bark to hang from when molting. Regarding humidity, give them a fair bit, but not nearly as much as you would a forest scorp. Plenty of ventilation is good too.

I'd suggest either breeding another generation when these mature, either amongst themselves or exchanging some with another hobbyist . . . it would be nice if these became a little easier to find in the hobby. Very Happy

Mr. Mordax:
She did everything to get rid of them off her back including eating a couple. She was not stressed in any matter and the temp and humidity was per instruction from the vague internet. They are separated in a incubator type situtation; the remainder (approximately 10 out of 18). Is this adequate or, is there another way?

Maybe she thought they wouldn't survive for some other reason . . . have they made it to 2I yet?

I've seen a mordax go from 1I to 2I off of mom, and I know at least one person has done it with emps, so they may still have a chance.

What's your incubator like?
