Before I went to bed today I checked up on some of my scorpions, and I noticed that a small moth was in the enclosure of the male Centruroides gracilis. How it got in, I don't know, but when I had finished brushing my teeth I noticed that the scorpion not only had captured the small flying insect, but was eating it as well.
The "hanging" eating position is very common in this scorpion species. I have also seen Centruroides flavopictus prefering this position when eating.
After a few pictures the scorpion got enough of the disturbance created by the bright flashes and started to move to a better hidden spot. The picture above suffers a bit from the glare caused by the combination of flash and the plastic box that houses the scorpion.
