Capture any photo or video of your scorpion doing anything funny, interesting or out-of-the ordinary?  Shocked

Post them here to share for laughter or for opinions!

We'll be sharing on a few shortly. Stay tuned Smile

My Babycurus jacksoni is sometimes caught sitting face down in the water dish for hours while everything from the face-plate on is completely exposed to watching him. He stays like this all day sometimes.

No, like 90 degrees tail up, face down. He would hold onto a rock I put in there and just sit there.

The 2nd instar scorpling is eating upside down, but the food item is 3x the size of the scorpling and it is lifted completely off the ground.

My Pandinus imperator scorpling was digging a burrow when I tried to feed him. Instead, he caught the roach, and held it in the air until I took it back. He then continued digging. I tried getting pictures, but his burrow didnt allow it.

"Starve" him for a month before offering him again, and he will learn how to treasure food from his keeper.

Of course, keep him hydrated Razz

Not really. For 3i, you can shorten then starving to 2-3 weeks for your own peace of mind, but really, if a scorp has been eating good, even a 2i can stand longs feasts.

 OK. Well I think he ate a cricket, so it should all be good. He's just being a jerk making me go pick up crickets.

It seems that I was right. I had to remove a roach, but he wolfed down the cricket. Mad

My Parabuthus liosoma completely buried himself. He did the "scorp marine" top but this time the periscope wasn't visible.
