Hello all,

I'm kind of concerned with one of my scorplings. I saw it eating something that looked like another baby scorpling but the "corpse" looked too white almost looking like a molt. So my question is, do they eat molt or did this one take advantage of another baby going through a molt and ate it? From my last count of 13 scorplings, I only found 6 molts for them to be at 3I.

Here are a few pics:

As far as I know scorpions dont eat their own moult. It probably was one of his siblings.

Yup. Looks like you are right. When he got to eating the mesosoma, he tore it in pieces and it's obvious that it was another sibling. Sad
