PostSubject: Scorpys' first..   5/10/2011, 4:22 am

Good day guys!

I'm new to the forum, i've been visiting here for some time but registered just now..
i currently have an Asian Forest scorpion, or is it?
I'm not so sure of the exact species since it's just a found scorp which i decided to keep as pet..
From Youtube shared videos I can see it's a Heterometrus but not so sure whether it's a Spinifer or Longimanus as they look the same to me..so if anybody can tell, much appreciated..

Anyway, to my surprise my Scorpy gave birth last night! now i'm sure it's a female..haha..
cheers

I have a question though regarding the scorplings.. when I woke up today, I was bothered, puzzled by the sight of one dead scorpling being eaten by small ants OUTSIDE THE TANK..

i have no idea how he got outside..

i don't think the mom threw it outside..
do baby scorps have clingy legs to climb glass walls?
could it be that the ants snatched him from the mom's back?

this remains a mystery..

i hope the other scorplings will survive..

i have here 2 photos of my Scorpy, one taken when she was about 1 week with me the other one taken last night while she was delivering her babies..




Cheers from the Philippines! Very Happy

Im gonna go longimanus, thats weird about the scorpling though,are you sure you havent got ants in the tank? looks like you have her on regukar soil whichcould have ants in it i guess? is there no lid on the tank? scorplings wont come down off her back until after a couple of weeks no scorpion can climb glass, and im sure she wouldnt of been able to throw one lol, so i dunno weird one i would be worried about any more dying, if ants are getting into the tank you need to sort that out or you risk loosing them all, and mum through stess if she ends up infested with ants, definetly get a lid on the tank if you havent already Smile

Thanks Bex.. ahh, Longimanus yah that's my first guess too..yes, i really found it weird. I hope no other scorpling gets into that trouble again.
It's actually coco debris from the sawmill, which looks like garden soil now. The only lid i have for the tank is a metal screen, do i need a glass one? I did find a few ants inside. will definitely sort it out..Thought so about climbing glass lol.

how did they get the scorpling through the metal screen lol? super ants lol you dont nee a glass lid no, that would just result in poor ventalation so stick with the mesh we cover ours with a towel to bump humidity up

I really don't know..when I saw them ants, they were not like carrying or moving the scorpling to some place..they were just eating the poor baby up like it was already there beforehand.
and there were only about 3 ants inside the tank.

and is that a damp towel you put on top?
I don't have to feed the mom until the babies get off right?
