PostSubject: My emperor scorpian had babys... but now shes dead?   7/16/2012, 4:02 pm

Hi,

Me and my boyfriend have had our emperor scorpian for about 5 months.. our first scorpian. When we bought her we chose her out of the rest becuase she was the biggest. Little did we know she was pregnant. She had a little over 20 baby's about 5 days ago. When they started coming off her back we realized she has tore up 3 of them so we removed the babys and put them in a seperate tank. The babys are running around and are fine. We have always kept her humidity levels accurate, and we have gone back and forth between meal worms and crickets. The day that we removed the babys from the tank, we clean the subtrate and put in new moss... but while we were doing so we found a big black beetle and some weired looking white worms. We removed them. Still have no idea were they came from though?. Anyways a day ago i noticed she was a little sluggish and there appeared to be a white hughe on her tail, but she seemed fine. This morning when i went to check on her I noticed she is laying flat and her tail is flat to the ground. Now being a new scorpian owner I am not sure if she is dead or if shes molting? Im deeply upset as i tried the water shock and not a signle flinch... ive poker her gently and nothing.... ive also noticed a oudor that is conming from the tank that i havnt smelt before? I just check on her yesterda and she was still fine. Can anyone shed some light on what is happening and if shes dead? What should my next steps be?


Thanks!

The beetle is probably an adult meal worm, and the small worms may be its babies. I doubt that this has anything to do with the scorpion passing. I am also new to sorpions, but I don't think that she is alive. A bad and unusual smell is usually a bad sign. Sorry for your loss Crying or Very sad

A scorpion that is laying flat with it's tail stretched out and a bad small coming from it is certainly dead.
Sorry for your loss but at least you have her scorplings. RIP

Yeah we are definantly raising the scorplings!

Do any of you know what may have cause the death? or things we should do to ensure we are taking full care of the scorplings, as we are new owners we are still not 100% on the best scorpian care methods. What is the best thing to feed scorplings?? there already turning a bit brown but are still a light yellow.

It's hard to tell the exact reason why she passed. Probably old age..

It's not the best scorpion care method but you may wish to read this for reference:
