PostSubject: scorplings not eating!   4/10/2008, 11:45 am

after work i noticed alittle surprise. all of the babies where walking around exploring and it's only been a week since they were on her back. so i carefully seperated them into their own little nusery, so now i have 13 little white babies walking around. none of them are dark at all, and i noticed the left over molt on her back. i put some tiny crickets in there to see if they were going to eat or at least try to eat. and nothing, they seemed to be scared and freaking out when the cricket got near them. next i put a couple of headless crickets at night and this morning they were still in the same place where i left them. i tried to put mom back in with them but she just ignored them and they seemed like they didnt care either. now my question is what do i do next? is there another method of feeding or should i just leave them alone and let them eat when they want.

Your scorpions are obviosly deformed...you need to put a little gas into the enclosure make sure you add a lot of dead leaves and then light it on fire making sure these never see light again....JK Razz.

It's normal for the scorps not to eat right away. I recomend feeding the babies fruitflies only because they don't freak the scorps out as much. If you want to continue what your doing let them be for a while and then try feeding them again in a few days. Don't try to feed them everyday you'll just stress them out.

They may not have fully hardened yet, either. Just give them some time and try feeding once a week or so.

My babies came off the back at 2 weeks and 1 day but it wasnt until 5 days had past that I removed them from mum. Some were still whiteish, while others browning.
I offered headless crickets. They didnt have ANY problems going for that!

When all were brown and a couple of weeks later I put in live food and all were fine

Im sure that if you dont want to nor can get some wingless fruitflies, your babies will be very happy to munch on headless crickets *put the head in as that doesnt need to be wasted*
and your little ones will be well fed and happy happy happy
