I was feeding all of my scorps yesterday and was noting their hunting habits. Out of the 11 species I have the H. Judaicus was my favorite. I actually observed one fall onto its prey and another seemed to leap at its prey. I often times observe them stretching trying to feel for prey. Most of my scorps just sit and wait.

So what is your favorite scorp to feed?

Hard to tell, maybe A.mauritanicus og H.jayakari.

When I throw something into the A.mauritanicus enclosue, the scorpion is inside it`s hide. When the prey pass the entrance, it suddenly dissapear Smile

Gave a mealworm to my H.jayakari. First , it just waited for the worm, and when it was in range, it grabbed hold of it and stung it 10-15 times. I lost count because the stinger was looking like a sewing machine.

Parabuthus villosus black morph

These scorpions are extremly aggressiv. They grab and sting everything that comes near. And they spray/throw venom as soon as I open their enclousures. I have to be very carefull when feeding them. But it's always fun to watch. Cool

ALL.
-Emps, you don't need a microscope to see them exteriorly digest their food.
-A.mourexi always has that clean straight shot and holds it in for a while.
-A.mauritanicus is like the previous but leaves a big stab wound with the insides flushing out
-C.Vittatus struggle with the prey so a lot of action.
Still awaiting B.Jacksonis and some other Centruroides from people here. and also a tytius Smile

O.Boehmi for some reason it catches it in its claws and the prey weakesn as if it had poison on its calws, lulz.
