Just remember to water them much more often than adults. As long as the substrate isn't littered with prey item parts, the possibility of a fatal fungal infection is next to none. Also, molts, as they remove the exocuticle, also remove mycosis as well. I've experimented with this phenomenon by purchasing several wc sub adult scorpions to see if their final molt rids them of mycosis. I've seen this work in even relatively extreme cases. As long as you're not afraid to water until they hit 4-5I, you shouldn't have much trouble rearing them. I've noticed in my experiences several species needing much more water at early instar than one would believe, ex. Hottentotta hottentotta, Leiurus quinquestriatus quinquestriatus, Androctonus bicolor and Parabuthus liosoma to name a few. This problem with hydration seems to lessen as their cuticle becomes thicker with age. I'm pretty sure that early instar's bodily evaporative rate is much higher than that of the adults or even sub adults.

On another, less informative note: Congrats on the babies, it's good to see someone working with this genus! Best of luck! Also, I'm super jealous of your luck with saulcyi, congrats!

Thanks for all the info Envyizm. At the moment I keep a bottle cap filled permanently for her and the entrance to her scrape is kept a little moist by misting.
The H.saulcyi's are doing great, hopefully expecting some broods in the coming months from them and my P.granulatus, A.bicolors and A.mauritanicus. So I have quite a few pregnant mommies.

It sounds as though the Clayless & Hideless Setup For Burrowing Desert Scorplings HOWTO that GS just posted would be beneficial for these species.

A little update on the slings. 3 of them made it to 2nd instar, unfortunately 2 of them died while in the proces of moulting. First time it has happened in all the time that I have been keeping scorpions.
These are proving tricky as all the comments about breeding them has been suggesting but no matter Very Happy I still have 3 healthy ones.

Sorry to hear about 2 of your slings dying on you. I'm new to having Scorpions myself, having just caught my first (a C. Vittatus). Your Mesobuthus eupeus is beautiful though. I would love to have one myself!

I don't think I could ever get used to having so many hot species like that. I found a video on youtube of a guy letting an LQ walk on his hand. I thought he was nuts!

Yeah, never understood why people like to handle dangerous creatures like these. In the herp world handling venomous snakes are looked down upon and thats the way it should be like in the scorpion keeping hobby as well imo. Why put your life on the line for a stupid act?

What made it even more insane was that the gentleman has a heart condition! While he was probably relatively safe letting it walk on him (as they don't tend to sting the 'ground') I still wouldn't even attempt to do such a thing. I'm not even planning on handling my little C. Vittatus.

They're great to admirer though and fun to watch. Hope to see more pics of your beauties.

Wow! I'm glad they made it to 2i, but it's sad to hear about the other two Sad
It's crazy for anyone to hold a Lq, I'm even scared feeding my P. transvaalicus. lol

Thanks man.
All my Parabuthus spp are pretty chilled, its my Androctonus and Hottentotta that have a bit of a temper on them. Needless to say that my hands dont go near the substrate and forget about handling them.

Agreed, handling them is not something high on my list of things to do haha. I would post the video for you guys of the idiot holding the LQ, but I can't for a few days due to being a new member. If you want to see the vid I can send it to you maybe in a PM?
