If she had them three days ago, then they're still 1I. It's pretty much safe to remove them any time after they wander off mom's back after molting for the first time.

Some people prefer to leave them in with mom; since forest scorpions are seldom cannibalistic, it's all a matter of personal choice.

Second instar comes in about 2 weeks after birth, like Mike said they wander from the mom and are a little more brownish. You may notice white slimy goop on the moms back, this is the exuvia left over from the first moult (I was a little amiss when I saw my first mother slimed with white discards)

Most of mine came off mothers back at 2 weeks and 1 day old. Some weere still white while others were still browning.
We removed mum and put her into a container and then with a spoon and container gently caught the babies one by one and then rehomed them into their own tank.

I then rehomed mum back into her old home and fed her Smile

I fed the scorplings headless crickets until they all turned brown and then when feeding time came around again, some small live crickets were put in

And also if you plan on seperating them, Have a UV/blacklight handy, there helpful when you want to make sure you have them all.

You did post in my scorplings thread but I did reply in here on what to do and what to feed.
Headless crickets to start with and when all brown SMALL crickets can be put in, as they get more confident I added bigger crickets.
But to start with and after being seperated from mum, headless crickets. Any size since they arent likely to bite the babies

Hey 111, if you can get a roach colony started, they aren't as risky (or stinky or noisy) a prey item as crickets are. They're also easier to breed so you don't have to buy more prey every couple of weeks.


What to do with all the extra roaches in a colony, you ask?



























Buy more scorps! What a Face

There's a bunch of dealers online who carry them. Check out our feeder caresheets / distributors section -- there's a sticky at the top indexing a bunch of websites where you can buy feeders.

A lot of people swear by Blaptica dubia. They're a pretty good roach, and I have a colony of them myself.

Roaches are actually one of the healthiest feeders available. Mealworms are pretty fatty.

They are selling roaches in the shop around the corner from us...although I think those ones are more intended as pets.
You could try to see if they ship? roaches are hardy, or so I always thought

Roaches will do fine shipping overseas. What species where you looking at?
