Congradulations! I think there are intructions on caring for baby scorps on this site somewhere but I can't find it, does anyone know where it is?

I think the rule-of-thumb with most scorp species is NOT to feed them when they have babies on their backs. I think there are a few species that willl kill prey for the babies, but most do not. I think prey hopping around in the cage with mom can stress her. I'll let some of the others with more experience jump in here though.

Congrats! Smile
They will leave her back very soon, and then you can feed them. As soon as the babies are 2. instar - that happens fast, they are able på kill cricks.
Thats what happens at my house.. And im up to third batch of Jacksonis since summer. They are very good hunters right from the birth!
