Cannibalism does suck. Hopefully she only did it to help the brood be extra big. She owes you extra scorplings now! What's the maturation rate on these?

Crying or Very sad Slow, that one want anywhere near a molt. And they were all offered roaches yesterday in fact there was still a roach running around in there. But oh well at least I got some experience out of this also snapped some shots for my notes but they're a little to gruesome for the forum.

Did you catch her in the act? Please PM or send them to my e-mail. I'm very curious/concerned about this too.

Wow, that's so weird. I've had my group together for around 3 years without any incident. The only time I separate any of them is when the female's pleural membrane shows a redish coloration in it "from fully developed young". Losses from cannibalism always sucks.

yet another incident! My remaining 2 have been separated but I just donít know WHY WHY WHY is she so aggressive. Sheís fat and there were roaches to eat. I had just given them water the night before this incident they were all drinking. I havenít sexed my remaining 2 but this is the same female as last time and the remaining one looks like a male but I need to get a good pectine shot to confirm. If I lost my pairsÖIím just going to give up. Sad

I heard when a female scorpion is gravid she can ward of the male because she doesn't want to mate ... I think it possible to assume that your female might be gravid and decided to eat the male as a result of this defensive behavior.
