    Hahaha... well, there's your answer on if she's gravid or not!!

    Bull... I want to say they will stay on the momma's back until they molt into the next instar.... I am, however, not the scorpion guru, haha.

    I will keep you all posted on their development. I am going to be doing a video tonight and I will post pictures as they grow. I was very surprised and kind of foolish at the same time. I moved mama to a smaller container because she seemed she was being stressed out by the others and then I check on her the next day she had like six more babies on her and one in her mouth I guess she was hungry.

    Yeah from what I have heard, emps are pretty notorious for eating their young. And like Bell said they will stay with her until they molt, then they will start venturing off the mom. When my spinigerus popped, when the babies started leaving, then they would run back to the safety of mom.
