PostSubject: Babies! Help!   5/25/2012, 11:00 am

One of my H. Spinifers gave birth to some baby scorpions the other day, since this is the first time I've dealt with baby scorpions a bit of advice would be amazing Very Happy

My main questions are....
When should I feed the babies, how should I feed them and what do they prefer? Pinheads, Fruit flies...?
When should I feed the mother?
When should I take them away from the mother?

Any advice at all will help a lot Very Happy

When my swammerdami gave birth i let some of the scorplings stay with here for several months and she always fed them first when i gave her adult male dubias. My guess is that you can let them stay with her until at least 3rd or 4th instar. Feeding them is no problem when they are 2i because the mom will take care of that as long as you give her some big roaches Smile

Thanks Smile
Roughly how long does it usually take for new born ones to have their first molt?
Can I just feed the mother as normal while the babies are still on her back? My main concerns are the movies getting hungry and eating some babies or putting a cricket in only to have the cricket try and eat them.

When this happens, it either could be due to an overly stressed scorpion mom or the eaten ones are the weaker individuals.

First, ensure that the humidity is correct and substrate is adequately moist to the touch.
The next thing would be minimising disturbance to her.

Yes, it means no other scorpion around which aren't part of her brood.. she needs to be left brooding alone in the tank.

No active feeders running around her, only headcrush ones to be left on the outside of her hide.

Exactly when did she gave birth to them?
