Or did she possibly give birth and eat the others??? Is it the same size as the others that you removed?

I suppose it is totally possible. Things like that happen with other creatures all the time in the wild. Maybe she just wants to fatten in up a little to eat it though. Smile Seriously....that is pretty cool.

I have seen behavoir with my B.jacksoni that shows that orther females will let instars crawl on her back even if its not her brood, i have seen one female have a 2 instar brood on her back when i wanted to pick her up the brood whent all over the tank and suddenly i had 3 females with 2 instars on they back Very Happy

I belive this is pretty common behavior with communal scorpions
