PostSubject: I need help ASAP!   4/4/2012, 3:11 pm

I have an emporer scorpion with 4 scorplings that are about 1-2 weeks old. Today one of the scorplings fell of the moms back and is just laying in the substrate. It is moving and still alive but the mom has just left it. What do I do? Do I try to put it back on the moms back or do I take it out and feed it myself? Is there any hope for this little guy??

First, welcome to the forum.

I'm not an expert on this sort of thing, but you could try (VERY CAREFULLY!) putting it in a plastic deli cup with very moist substrate. I don't think you should try to put it back on the female, you would stress the mother and the other scorplings out and you might accidentally knock other scorplings off.

Before you do anything, you might want to wait for people who have had experience with this to reply.

Thank you! I appreciate the response. I just don't want to lose a scorpling if I can help it.

I dont know much about Emperor scorpions, is the scorpling 2nd instar? If. it is you can just place it in a deli cup like scorpion1998 suggested.

I want to say it is because when I last looked it had some skin on the end of its tail that is not gone but I'm not 100%. I did put it in a deli cup of its own and it seems to be doing a little better. What do I do to feed it? It is still super white but seems to be a little more brown then before. It isn't walking around the cup, just laying there but it will get up and move its legs and claws if I open the lid.

Are you sure it's second instar? You may want to look here. It has some pictures of first and second instar emps. First instars will look very fat compared to second instars.

Since he is second instar can he be seperated in his own deli cup? What and how can I feed him?? What do I need to do for him differently than I do for the mom?

You might want to read this and this. These should answer all your questions.
