Do Scorpions Lay Eggs?

Scorpions reproduce through a process known as viviparity, where the young are born live rather than hatched from eggs outside the mother’s body. This is unlike many other arachnids, which typically lay eggs.

After mating, female scorpions undergo a gestation period that can range from a few months to a year, depending on the species. Once the gestation period is over, the mother gives birth to live young. These young scorpions, known as scorplings, will initially remain with their mother, often riding on her back, until they have undergone at least one molt and are capable of surviving on their own.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. – Helen Keller
