I've never seen my scorpions take 2 crickets at once, its a shame. Also I'd be careful feeding scorpions wild caught moths (if thats what the last picture was of) some species (though the minority) accumualte pyrrolizidine alkaloids from food plants, these are seriously toxic to many types of organsim, and could well adversly affect your scorpion.
thanks for the warning. I didn't know that! I'll be careful next time.
I'm probably just doom mongering but its good to know these things.
is the first pic eating a dragonfly? how did you even CATCH that? they are really fast!
I was convinced 5 secs that it was a ting gold septer. :? But how indeed?
I caught it with my hands! ;P
what is the first picture of? is it an emp?
correct me if i am wrong, but i am going to say heterometrus spp.
Did you clip the wings of the moth and dragonfly when you gave them to the scorp?
pandinus, youre right, its a heterometrus longimanus
Brian, i didn't slip the moths wings...
DANG! I was gonna say longimanus, but i wasnt sure enough!
I love to see a predator eating a predator, nice pics. Pandinus, you have the look of an arachnobaron.
thank you, Carpe.
you have the look of a yellow tityus
I love eating pics....the double fister is a goodie!
Nice pics, reminds me of the first day i had my Emperor, Panadora, we were told just to put a couple of crickets in and leave them till they were eaten, well we put them in and she caught one straight off. i checked on her 5 mins later and she had eatten half of one and had the other two in the same pincer
Wow.. good hunting! My emperor tends to be pretty laid back about hunting.. he'll wait forever for one of the crickets to finally walk past his hide.. and then he ambushes
Nice dragonfly! It's a blue darner. I can just picture the scorp stalking it. As soon as they figure out how big the enclosure is, they fly in loops. THat's how they hunt. The thing is, they always land in about the same spot every few loops. Of course, UNTIL they figure out the size of the enclosure they tend to fly into the clear walls... that would be an esay time for the scorp to catch it.
