Scorpion hunting

Sunday, July 2, 2006 | 0 comments

Late at night (or better: in the early morning) I watched one of the Diplocentrus sp., a scorpion, walking around in its terrarium, and trying to catch a house cricket.

It was quite fun to watch, each time the scorpion got close, the house cricket jumped to a different location. I have also noticed that the crickets prefer to rest in high spots, which are a bit harder to reach by scorpions.
