Hi,
Mine had babies not too long ago, too. I seperated the babies when they were 2 months old. Mainly because the mama was leaving them to go to another "hide", so I figured she was getting tired of their company. :-). By that time they were feeding themselves. For now, the Mother will feed them with the Crix or worms You are feeding her. So, Make sure there is plenty. The Babies will cannibalize each other if there isn`t enough "prey". While they are small, crush the head of the prey before feeding it to the babies. I am still doing that for mine (they were born April 3rd) and I will probably do it for a while. Before selling or giving them away, You need to make sure You`ve got them well started...That they`ve molted several times, and are feeding good on their own. And your last question...Yes, Scorpions don`t know they are brother & sister. So they will mate with their siblings. Rayna :-)

No, They are male & female...seperate sexes. Link
How long did You have the 2 big ones before You found babies? While the babies are with the mama, Put the prey close to her and she will feed them. Once they start moving around, they will be able to hold their prey and feed themselves. What I mean is kill the prey before You put it in with them. Crix will chew on the babies and worms can get away. So, Crush the head of the Cricket or worm so that the babies can eat it. When were your babies born? Rayna :-)

We started hand-feeding the little runt when we seperated them from their Mama. We don`t hand feed all of them every night...there are 17...LOL. So, they take turns. I just want to be sure all are used to being handled. We bought ours preganat. That`s why I asked how long You`d had them. They carry their babies about 9 months before giving birth. And, Your last question, I can`t answer- I haven`t been stung by any of them. To pick up the babies, I scoop them up along with the soil they are sitting on, so that I don`t hurt them. Then, I just let the soil fall away and they sit , rather crawl around, on my hand. Rayna :-)
