Tonight I was scanning around the collection with a blacklight.

I peered into my H. longimanus juvenile community and saw this:

Artist's impression

Two juvenile H. longimanus of different instars . . . in the exact same pose . . . directly on top of each other . . . sticking their heads out of the burrow, telling me they were hungry.

I thought it was too weird not to share.

So . . . what strange things have YOU seen while doing the rounds?

Nothin amazing, but it's cute when the little scorpions get off their moms back then run back on her.

The only cameras at home are my cell phone's (yeah, right) and the crappy point-and-click with the perpetually dying battery.

the only fantastic thing which might not be was I went into the room and saw a scorpling out in the open *pandinus imperator* moulting. No one else around...it sorta moved...knowing I was there and all of a sudden all its siblings rushed out and started attacking me!
Siblings...at least pandinus protect each other when moulting!

Probably the most interesting was my Mesobuthus gibbosus and their tail wagging I posted HERE.

Though my Opithacanthus asper is always pretty funny. It doesn't usually directy go after prey or run from it, it likes hiding with only its chela visible and when the cricket approaches it runs out into the open grabs the cricket crushes it and then runs back to hiding with dinner in hand.

Or one of my Vaejovis puritanus parading around after killings its prey. It kills the cricket, eats half the head and then runs around with the cricket in its mouth.

Now that I think about I probably have at least one story from each feeding.
