Nice, I love how the males will kill prey and then move to a high spot and wave it around in the air as an offering for first female to come along. I believe this is done to reduce the chances of becoming a meal themselves when she arrives. :)

You can see the burrow up against the glass here.

I see the edge get close to the lip of the tank and freak out... ..scrolled a little bit further and the death monster is waiting to kill...No wait, it already killed and is killing more.. Either way that is what nightmares are made of. How do you NOT have to perform an inventory check every time you get home?

Amazingly, the plants are still alive. That's a 2.5 gallon tank.

Thankfully here in Nebraska we have no scorpions, but sadly aswell because they look like they would be cool pets! Especially this one, I watch videos online of spiders and scorpions attacking prey, but no scorp really every stings.. that is sweet yours does!

This thing loves to sting. That's the first thing it does to everything it catches. It just slowly stabs it with its stinger if it keeps moving around too much while it's trying to eat it.

Drew, you should try placing blue death feigning beetles(Asbolus verrocosus) with that Hadrurus arizonensis. They cohabitate and the beetles eat the leftover dead food and scorpion excrement. The scorpions don't seem to eat them, and from research, they seem beneficial. The beetles are pretty cute and play dead if you handle them, hence their common name- blue death feigning beetles :D

I think I've heard of that before.
