Is that like a Sydney funnel web? like the kind where you seriously don't want to get bitten? Not bad quality vid, there is much much worse out there.
How'd ya capture the funnel web? guessin it was a cupped catch and you just dumped it into the cage. I've got no soft spot for funnel webs in particular, so doesn't bother me none.

Pandinus Imperators Under the UV

{D I noticed one of my new P Imps going down the hide of another one late one night. So I popped out the UV flashlight I just got and filmed it. There is some scrapping and juddering going on down there. pretty impressive. There was no audio (except me being quiet at night) so I threw in some free loops to liven it up.

:D It was a bit difficult to try to reach into the enclosure with the video camera and light while trying to focus down there hide but I feel it came out well.

:p that is a fluorescent mineral of some sort under it feet I'm not sure what kind I just bought a box of them and put some into the enclosure.

:wall: I tried to upload to YouTube but can't get it to go, So I just uploaded to this temporary location untill then. the file is 2 minute @ 22MB Mpg.

Here is the Link --> LINK <--

Or type in --> www (dot) meye-thaughts (dot) com/holding_bin/Scorpion_under_UV (dot) mpg <--

12/17/2006 - I was able to get the video up to You Tube and that post follows. The above link will be valid for a week or so if you want to down load it directly, then I'm deleting it. ;P

Enjoy Thaedion :cool:

Pandinus Imperator Bathing

Here is a video of my female emperor doing a little bathing. My tank setup used to have a deeper watering hole where they would fully submerge, but this is what I they have now. Hope you enjoy. Thaedion :cool:

Fascinating! I didn't know they did that.

Do they bath often? Do many others in Scorpionidae bath?

I'll have to put in a larger dish when I redo my tank.

I find it so interesting that scorpions actually bathe, well P.imperators do. Nice video, thanks for posting it.

two videos I just posted the other day on YouTube. I originally put them in individual threads but I want to put them in here for consistency to keep the videos in the video file.

*** Do not handle scorpions, as they are venomous unpredictable wild creatures ***

I took one of my 3 Heteromertus longimanus bornees out for an inspection and thought I would share the experience. I took her outside for different scenery for the video. This is a female that I bought from www.Tarantulas.com (Northwest Zoological Supply) Thanks Dan! ;)

I took this girl out to see what is what with her, just inspecting for any problems and thought I'd shoot a video of it.

Disinterested Pandinus imperator

I placed my male into a femals tank to see if they would mate. The male enters the hide and runs away. The female seems willing to mate, but he just laid there. Maybe later. :rolleyes:

This U armatus had a cricket in its mouth while working at its burrow, hence it was a little hesitant about the cricket that happened by. Note the use of the tail in pushing soil out. I used my uv torch for illumination.
