 Scorpion Baby Care: URGENT!

When I got my female emperor scorpion on my birthday, she was perfect! I loved her, and I took good care of her.

After a few months, she became pretty aggressive, and fat. I thought she was not being taken care of, but guess what, she had babies!

I loved them very, very much, but sadly, they all died! All 20 babies, dead. The last surviving member died when she was in a 40 gallon tank.

Here is the stats.

She had babies in a 10 gallon tank.
The floor was wood chips, pretty big, too.
Every baby died in the 10 gallon tank, EXCEPT for one.
The last baby died in the 40 gallon tank. I think it was due to molting, I think they die when they molt.

Any suggestions or advice to help my next batch of babies have a nice, happy life?

Hard to tell really. What where your temps? Humidity? Did you have a male emp in there?

Wood chip is not really a good substrate. Scorpions love to burrow and will find it hard to burrow with wood chip as it doesnt usually hold a good burrow.
