And this site:
http://www.desertusa.com/oct96/du_scorpion.html

On the average, a female gives birth to about 25-35 young. They remain on her back until they molt for the first time, usually within a week or two after birth. Once they climb down, they assume an independent existence, and periodically molt to reach adulthood. Typically five or six molts over two to six years are required for the scorpion to reach maturity.

and one more:
http://insects.tamu.edu/extension/bulletins/L-1678.html

Adult scorpions may have several broods of young. Following an elaborate mating process, which lasts from 24 to 36 hours, the female undergoes a gestation period ranging from 5 months to more than 1 year. The young are born alive in semi-transparent sacs. As soon as the young scorpions free themselves from these thin wrappers, they climb onto their mother's back. Already capable of stinging, the young scorpions leave the mother after several days and begin to fend for themselves. Scorpions reach maturity in a year or more, depending on availability of food.

Did you think of posting in the invertebrate forum ? Maybe take a peek there as well. I'm sure there are scorpion/spider keepers there with loads of help for you. Best of luck & the pics were cool. Dar.
