A Scorpion Giving Birth… Have you seen one?

Scorpion anatomy: 1 = Prosoma; 2 = Mesosoma ; ...

The scorpion’s birth process is truly amazing. The female’s back opens up and scores of newborn scorpions crawl out, and then the back grows back together like nothing has happened.

Nature really is surprising.

Any Ideas how a scorpion gives birth.  Here are the following photos you will find very sensational 🙂

At the back of this female scorpio a small slit would start to open on day 1…

Oh Gross!  Then numbers of baby scorpions started to advance on day two…

On day 3, still the baby scorpions continue to progress…

On day 4 the baby scorpions gradually move out and start to crawl and spread…

Yay! So Many of them 🙂

Last day on the 5th, the baby scorpions continue their way out, yet the young scorpion mother stays uninterrupted…

Look how breathtaking it is, young scorpion mother is back again to normal…  🙂

AMAZING!  Isn’t it? 


  1. Reblogged this on OUR LIFE IN 3D and commented:
    Can you believe this? Its incredible. Nature is full of curious oddities that amaze me. Nature can be so diverse. God may have a sense of humor here. Here is another I found a year ago: http://ourlifein3d.com/2012/12/29/and-now-for-so…tely-different

    Thanks to allaboutlemon for sharing this. Check out her blog that is equally diverse!

  2. That is frickin amazing! Really…

  3. Nature is so amazing for sure! Stunning photo’s of this birthing process Dolly. I loved it! 😀

  4. This is amazing but also quite eeek…. Nature is amazing, fantastic pictures!

  5. Hey Dolly, have you seen the orples? They are out and about again. 🙂


  6. This just goes to prove you really do learn something new everyday. This is so cool! Cool share, for sure. Thanks. 🙂

  7. I wonder on which day did God create this? Or, in what minute second he speak the scorpion birth into existence?

  8. Unnervingly weird but completely fascinating!!! RH

    Wow! I had no idea this was how Scorpions gave birth. Although not a fan of them, this very neat. Thanks for sharing!

    This is very interesting, this is material that I did not know, thank you for posting it. I liked your page about men and the 10 things, that gave me several chuckles. Hope that you have a good week.—Shalom

  11. The singer, Sting should see this.

  12. May I too say YUCK!!! – but fascinating. Nature is amazing.

  13. Wow! This is amazing!! Thanks for sharing….I’ve never seen Scorpions give birth. In the first pic you can see the babies in her. I was surprised to see how many she had!

  14. I have to like this one a 2nd time–without clicking the like button. It’s so utterly amazing! Wonder how many survive to maturity? And does the mother bond with them, or are they on their own?

  15. I never have seen this before! Amazing! 🙂

  16. I have been lucky enough to witness the birth of scorpions on 3 occasions and each time it is just as amazing as the first time. I don’t think it could ever become old hat. A scorpions “body” is amazing how it transforms during pregnancy and then “grow” back after healing.

    Great article.

    Would that it were so easy for us humans – but thousands at a time? I think not! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for stopping by and “liking!” Your blog is so much fun.

  18. Yes, indeed. Truly amazing. Thank you for sharing this.

  19. Never gave scorpion birth a moment’s thought! Prior to reading this & looking @ the photographic account, I assumed that scorpions did not give birth to totally live (but small) young, but were like snakes, and laid eggs. This is an amazing thing to share! Thanks for opening to doors to Mother Nature a bit wider for those of us who can only respond with awe! Merry Christmas, 2nd Day, if inclined~

  20. freaky! thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog. Keep on blogging 🙂 ecomummy

  21. She doesn’t even look tired!

  22. We have scorpions here in Arizona but not as large as the one pictured — or at least I haven’t seen one this big. Thanks for sharing this incredible series of photos. Incredible!

    • Uh…here in Arizona we have some of the most venomous and biggest scorpions in the world. Granted they’re not as big as Africa’s Emperor scorpion, but I personally have seen scorpions here in Arizona that were roughly six inches (not including their tails) in body length. BIG scorpions yes. Now, if you want to see a really freaky spider that we also have here in Arizona…look up the “Solpulgid” and prepare to be amazed (In other parts of the world they’re called camel spiders).

      • Wow! Thanks David… I goggled “Solpulgid”. hmm they’re very interesting too 🙂

        • The solpulgid is a ten legged spider. 100% non-venomous (though they probably could deliver a painful bite), and they routinely take down prey many times their size. Their “chelicerae” or mandibles/mouths are the largest (in relation to their heads/bodies) of any other cature on the planet. They can open a full 180 degrees, and each has its own set of pincers on the ends. Unlike most spiders that have several sets of eyes that can scan 360 degrees around them, solpulgids only have two keen eyes that face forward. They are truly amazing.

  23. This is the first time I’ve seen this. Never knew how scorpions give birth. This is great. Thanks for the info.

  24. I’m scratching all over.

  27. waaaa, never seen it before, so….so disgusting!

  28. Amazing! Out of this world!

  29. Ok. Now I know something I would have never known otherwise. Still, eewwww, so gross.

  30. Thanks to all my co-bloggers who liked this post 🙂

  31. BTW… how many did she have? And how many lived?

    • Oh, I am sorry I cannot give you details about that, I did not bother to count them, because before I could have, one of your team from pest control came and whoa! They were extinguished, hehhehe 🙂 Thanks again for this and for your visit. You are always welcome.

  32. Those are awesome… did you know that baby scorpions don’t glow under a black light? Check it out here: http://blogpestcontrol.com/2010/08/baby-scorpions-under-a-black-light/

  33. Absolutely astounding. Also, I learned today that baby scorpions are called scorplings. A fact that somehow makes this process even more adorable.

  34. Wow thats interesting, how about a male one I would like to know 🙂
