PostSubject: A. bicolor birth   7/17/2011, 4:07 pm

So I lifted the hide of dried cork bark off of one of my A. bicolors and got a surprise, it was giving birth!

Kind of worried now though, I may have interrupted it, about 4 babies scurried around when I lifted the bark it was under and they were pretty white, maybe 1i but they seemed a lil big for 1i so maybe they are already coming off the back but I only saw 2 still on the mothers back and it didn't seem like there was enough of them for the full brood to have come out. How many scorplings are in a regular A.bicolor brood anyway? I'll let it go for about 2 days then check again and i'll post pics.

This was a wild caught specimen that I recently purchased about a month ago so i'm stoked (dunno what other word to describe it and I hate that word) about this. Have 1 other wild caught female too so if the greek gods smile upon me I may have 2 broods, also the wild caught LQ seems to be ignoring it's male mate and getting bigger with a huge appetite so maybe it's also halfway into being gravid. Fingers crossed.

Update;
Thought only 3 survived but they were all hiding in the cork bark holes!

Got 13 out of the small piece of bark, 2 were dead inside, there were 5 dead under the mother.

I'll post pics after I get back from a movie.

Looks like 13 in all, looked again in the enclosure and can't find anymore. But I do have another WC female A.bicolor that looks the same as the gravid one did before so maybe that one will pop also.

Gz on the babies. It might have been too dry?
Average brood, I thought they were supposed to have up to 30-40 scorplings.. but seeing as two births here average about 15 scorpions, I'd say that averages out..

Casualties usually are because of a lack of humidity. In the wild these scorpions can dig pretty deep and search for a moist spot to give birth.

Well i found 15, will see when the other one of mine pops, and Chrome's other, 14 on average now, think thats a decent number tho Smile my T. stigmurus only had 4, quess they give birth too more their second brood.

Pluto btw, i don't have to worry much about my bicolors getting mycosis? they arnt sensitive? or what do you mean?

Nah, they dont get mycosis from short exposure to humidity.. and its not like you have to water them.. just keep them a bit more moist, as you would do with scorplings.. I water 1/4 of the sand they are on lightly each week. Never had a casualty yet from dehydration.

And no mycosis either... so

In all including the dead ones I found there was somethings like 24 so it was a decent brood if I caught it in time...

Sorry Bro but 13 isn't so bad.
Hopefully your other bicolor is prego to and has a huge brood to make up for it.
