Life Cycle

Read full entry

The female scorpion holds the fertilized eggs inside of her until they are ready to hatch. She then lays the eggs, and eggs hatch as fully developed juvenile scorpions almost immediately. The female will carry her young on her back until they are too large to all fit. The gestation period is not known for certain in this particular species of scorpion, but it is thought that the female holds in the eggs for aproximately 10 months.
