Decided not to waste the dead specimens and documented the size for 3i H. caboverdensis:

#1 - 20mm



#2 - 22mm



And a quick size comparison - #2 vs. its 2i exuvia

Bit of updated stats:

2i on premolt : 6
Molted to 3i : 12
Lost scorpions: 4

Scorpion-mum:

116 days from first brood, she dropped a bunch of undeveloped embryos last night. No babies this time.
I'll monitor her temps more strickly for the next months and make sure she gets enough food, and hope for a good litter in 3 or 4 months.

I think I'll go back to my old heating scheme, it seemed to work well for her first brood.. I was then keeping her at 32 C (+- 2 degrees), 24/7.

Now she's got the same daytime temps but for 12h daily, because she's sharing a heating element with one of my geckos.

Looks like she still haven't got her appetite back.

I've never had that big difference in molting times among individuals from a single brood.

First ones molted to 3i in 76 days
Last ones took 122 days

I can't say they were equally fed though, and I didn't keep to a strict feeding schedule so I attribute that as being the cause.
