i'm no expert by far, but i would say this is unlikely. if it was sleeping at night while many other creatures become active, it would be more open to attacks, or else constantly disturbed by others that were out and about. i'm sure they sometimes come out in the day for random reasons, if they are really hungry and sense a possible meal within reach, fix their scrape/hide, etc. but staying out too long in the sun could lead to overheating/desiccation, and open them up for attacks of day time predators with sharp vision.Thiscordia said:I know scorpions are nocturnal but there must be at least 1 specie that its active during the day and sleeps at night or at least very active during the day and not so active at night? Anyone knows?
Hey Luc,Barkscorpions said:While diurnal surface activity has been rarely reported among scorpions, several species have been observed to forage and travel during the day. Parabuthus villosus is one such scorpion.
