i'm well aware that scorpions can survive with a minimum of 2 feedings a year but my H. longimanus and H. paucidens are eating superworms everyday for 5 consecutive nights now. they are refusing other prey though. should i be worried in any way or am i just being paranoid? Very Happy

Nothing to worry about...they're both pretty bulky, large scorpions, so it may be easier for them to capture slower, larger prey items such as superworms that fast moving, small crickets.

Either that or they've taken a liking to junk food! Razz

I'd have to agree with your friends there mate. Smile

I wouldn't feed them superworms every time, but no harm will come to them from it. (They might get fat and stop eating for a while though.)
