She is still currently pressed, defying gravity on her side pressed to the heatmat wall *rolls eyes*

Its toasty enough Mummy Scorpy!
She seems to be fine and not missing her brood....not that I thought she would.
Might chuck in some food for her tonight too. Its about time

My babies are currently after each others crickets! Missed a great sting shot from four...they decided to drag the cricket under the hide and I couldnt capture what I could see which was all four having a go!
I have one munching on a HUGE cricket (heads cut off so no risk to babies) and another wants to share but...the other doesnt want to! *hehe*

FEEDING TIME AT THE ZOO! *1 month and 5 days old*
All the action happened under the hide! I saw 4 munching the same cricket at that time...


"ooh what have you got?"

"Go Away! ITS MINE!"

"I'm super happy with scraps!"


So cute!

ooh very greedy! 4 big crickets and their heads. ALL GONE!
I saw one running about last night with a huge cricket leg and thigh in its mouth! it would be like a human with a lamb leg in his/her mouth!

Was watching them this evening, two got into a "shake shake judder judder" thing but that didnt last long and then watched a small one digging down and pulling out and pushing out the soil he/she had collected. Making a little burrow! Im not pleased they are doing this since I didnt pack the soil down!
I cant imagine they will go far down and get burried as it is all lose so they can just scramble to the top if need be!

Stingy is out and about again tonight which makes me worry! Before I would hardly see her! Makes me think something isnt right!

Sometimes my adults come out to explore, sometimes they sit in their burrows for weeks at a time.

But that's cute that the little one was making a burrow! Very Happy

*gasps* I cant go off topic. Its about my lovely babies Smile and yes, im very pleased about the longest running thread!
I guess it will run out when the babies are all away from me...but saying that I shall be keeping 3...or maybe...all of them Embarassed

Stingy was on the hunt for food I think, 2 crickets in the tank...one cricket had moulted, was all big and white but FAST! she tried but it just ran off to the other side of the tank! was hard to not laugh at the silly comical situation!
The other cricket is hiding in the cork bark, so tonight out they both come! she clearly isnt that fussed about eating them!
its just strange not seeing her looking so fat anymore! She looks SKINNY! but then again she was a balloon dressed as a scorpion for a long time, so the change is easy to see

3rd Instar!!!

I noticed last night that there was some moult skins lying about! Not full ones though so I dont know how many have moulted. I did see one scorpling poking himself in and out of a hide and clearly can see a size difference! also not as "dark" anymore, so im guessing its been recently done!
We did lift up the tank to get a look underneath *they all under the substrate and can see their little tummies on the bottom of the glass* and counted 16 so dont know if we have lost any but then again, you dont know who is where etc*

I think underneath one was in the process of moulting too! but was hard to see!

I will have to wait and see how many have moulted. I havent looked in the tank for about 2 days as kept looking for evidence of moulting, so when ive stopped looking they have gone and done it!
Typical eh!

they hit 2nd instar at 2 weeks and 1 day. just over 6 weeks later and 3rd instar is happening

Sweet!! What a Face

I just saw something on Venomlist where someone recorded how long it took his emps to hit maturity -- final molt was at over 600 days, so you've got a bit of a wait until you can get started on the next generation. But it's nice to hear that they're making progress!

I did see someones, somewheres list on how long it took and I thought it would be last month they would moult, my babies seems to be taking a little bit longer to do it, but I guess its all in their own time.
Some people said 7-10 days to come off the back and they took 15 days
Its really hard for me to tell since they are all hidden but I know 1 has done it, so at 8 weeks we shall say but I think it could be a few days over that.

But I have a long way to go yet! I know I said at 3rd instar I would pass them on but already I want to keep them all...its like not being able to let a kitten go to a new home
