Parabuthus Transvaalicus

Absolutely my favorite scorpion species. Stay out in the open most of the time. Ferrocious! Fast! Precise! Hilarious! And will eat whenever you feed them until they get too bulky to stuff in anything anymore.
 
@MathiasVG lol you nailed it! Both of mine wander and explore / digg more than hide. They literally NEVER reject meal unless as u said, they're stuffed
 
And when they are stuffed, instead of moving away or ignore the prey, they slap their tails on the ground left and right to drive the prey away. Just hilarious! I tried to see their reactions towards prey before molt. I droped a cricket knowing the scorpions wouldn't eat. And the scorpion chased the cricket swinging it's tail in the air in circles. The funniest scene I've seen on a scorpion. If yours is about to molt, I highly recommend it. lol
 
Ive tested it on a few other scorps.. some ignore it and tail wagg. Ive seen some sting and drop prey to die..and ive seen others be taken over by demonds going completely ape shit slapping their tails on everything
