Mother Scorpion with Young

I spotted this group of scorpions below a large pile of rocks that were left untouched for quite a while. I was kind of expecting to find them as they are always present in such piles. There were many tiny young scorpions together with a large mother. Not wanting to disturb them, I covered the crevice with a rock and left.

Thanks Calvin! Don't worry, they're out there alright, its just that they're shy or nocturnal. I've a friend in SG who's crazy over scorpions but still hasn't spotted a single one in the wild!
