Ok, after sexing my nine 4i emps I have discovered that they are all female apart from one of them. Do emps normally give birth to prodominantly one sex or is this just a massive coincidence?

The only background reading i can find on this is that they normally give birth to a ratio of 1:1??


Edit: I have just read that the sex ratio of babies is not temperature dependant for this sp either?

Did you have deaths from this brood? It's possible you were just unlucky and males died.

One scorp was eaten before i could sex it and that might imply that a couple others (i was adamant that i had about 15) at the start but only ever found remains of the one i know was eaten - so i guess its possible.



Quite unusual then i take it? scratch
