I admit that video I put up is absolutely horrible in every way... I found it on youtube and this particular one stood out due to the fact the scorpion actually managed to latch on to the mouse like that. I didn't even know they were capable of taking down a healthy, adult mouse! It seems these large species of scorpion are able to do so (being opportunistic hunters - sit and wait for prey to come along. I guess the mouse fit that criteria). Some scorpions seem braver than others... or maybe this one was just hungry :eek::drunk:

The commentary on this video is beyond bad... these people don't deserve pets of any kind :mad::punch:
Indeed if your going to even do that anyway (which I’m sure the majority think isn’t the best thing to do) have a bit of respect for what you are doing.

Here's a video of my little LQ taking down a cricket the same size.

You can select the video quality... sorry if the video is a bit long

What a beautiful scorpion !
Yeah, these north African Buthus are really, really nice looking. This one is from Morocco which has 15 described species of Buthus. This is most of any country by quite a large margin which includes the largest, B.atlantis and the only single uniform black species of Buthus too, B.maroccanus. This won't be the last Buthus I purchase.

I don't have any Buthus yet... such a long "to get" list I have. LOL
