So far, i have witnessed my female 7i imac eat 4 juvie roaches in a row but i have never seen a fat bark scorpion before. could they fatten themselves the way desert sp do?

just curious.. if anyone has pics it would be highly appreciated Very Happy

Ill bump this a bit.

I can't speak about bark scorp I have no experience with them, but I think some here do.

However, I do think that all scorpions can display gluttonous behavior. I think it could correlate to several biological factors....
- prey availability
- Areas of distribution
- season and weather
- procreation/pregnancy.

And I would theorize several other factors.


If you look and read

this article it says and I quote :

Quote :
The species has rarely been collected in desert and arid areas, and Lourenco and Cloudsley-Thompson conclude that dry climate is probably the main limitation for this opportunistic species' ability to colonize new areas.


It already confirms this species is very sensitive to differences in climate, yet opportunistic.

So I would theorize that this would stretch into their feeding patterns.
Eat when things are optimal, to save for less optimal conditions, or changes.

Some of my thoughts.



Take care,


Joey

yeah but well 8i scorpions are very common back home particularly h. longimanus and p.trans and i dunno why Very Happy

okay so far from my observations, the female imac is a voracious eater. mine would fatten herself at one time then totally stops eating afterwards. it even goes after the part of its prey that falls down on the bottom
