What behavioural patterns would one expect between the two, if any.

Mt Pt is real aggro and does not stop eating. Could the eating be a function of being wild (only 2 weeks in captivity) and opportunistically taking anything that comes past purely on a reflex reaction. I have read that sometimes they can go a month without a meal?

Clearly mine will take anything on offer and I will be regulating the diet as a result.

I have not seen any clear differences in behavioural patterns between WC and CB. However I'm not sure on this point.

I can't site sources, but I doubt that there is any difference in behavior between wild caught and captive bred specimens. Scorpions cannot be tamed and just about everything they do is hardwired.
