    I put a rock in water dishes, many of them go completely under water and they just sit there completely submerged under the rock for I don't know how long, but it's for a long time. It's nothing new seen with Pandinus and Heterometrus but I didn't expect to see so many actually "prefer" to be underwater for such a long time. Sometimes I've seen as many as five crowded together under that little rock completely submerged. I'm sure there would be a lot more under if it were a bigger water and rock space there. I just let them do it, whatever, have enough that's there's no risk to the collection over here. Just thought it was kind of interesting.

    Huh. Never knew scorpions did that. Cool, as long as there is no harm. They did evolve in the sea and were the first animals in land, so I imagine water is not a harming factor to some of them.

    Plus, they have swimmer in the name, unless you meant Swammerdami of course.
