    Don't worry that some of the scorpions refused to eat. That one that you fed the worm to made up for all the rest. It's not often you get a sting and eating action under the macro lens. I's with the other people. Please show scorpions more often.

    I live in Arizona and the scorpions I found in my apartment looked just like your pet that took the worm. I had 2 of them in a two room apartment. I almost stepped on it with my bare foot because it looked like a leaf. I thought twice because I didn't have my glasses on, so glad I waited!

    Although I love my scorpions I got to say they are secretive. Currently I only have H.silenus (3 scorplings) but I had H.spinifer, P.imperator and B.jacksoni and I never saw the Babycurus eat. I do have luck to see them munching from time to time but once I turn the camera on they are gone. Also Ts are so silent in comparison to scorpions. They just bang on the glass while moving :D Gotta love those pretty arachnids :)

    I live n Arizona & I think there is a huge misconception about our scorpions. I have only ever seen or experienced problems with scorpions n pretty wet conditions. I only find them where there is water...around pools, irrigation ditches, or water sprinklers/spickets. I would find many n these places that always have water. Yes, they r desert dwellers but they seek very wet places. When I lived out n true desert boonies, no pools, grass, or irrigation, I only ever saw 2 scorpions in the 13 years I lived there. In town where there r more permanent water instalations, u find clumps of them. In the houses too. Never got stung n the dry desert, only n houses or apartments with grass, pools, or irrigation. I always think keepers keep them way too dry because of what I have observed here n Arizona.

    Petko, since scorpions are nocturnal and don't like to hunt in bright lights, what about getting a camera that can film in ultra violet light? Then you could film in a darker room.

    Have you tried feeding without moving their enclosure? Sometimes the initial movement of the enclosure may spook them enough to not want to eat.

    Few months back when I started watching your channel I only had a bunch of reptiles but that changed very fast. You got interested in scorpions, assassin bugs and even tarantulas. Bought my first 2 scorpions last summer, “heterometrus cyaneus” and “heterometrus petersi”. I bought them at a reptile fair, and the cyaneus molted the day after, sadly it has passed away recently (at 14cm). I dried it in a natural position with some needles so I can keep it.

    I just started subscribing to your channel this January this year because this was also the time i started tarantula and scorpion keeping. I started too late in life (im 39), i know, but i am doing my best to catch up rewatching your old uploads. Not only are your videos very insightful in the joys of keeping exotic pets, but I am also learning as well the rate of male pattern baldness over the years. At least I am learning what to expect since I am also in the same genetic boat as you. My current hairline is similar to your hairline 3 years ago. Thanks for sharing.

    I watch channels about various parrots. Knowing that they are a bunch of feathers attached to a can opener made me realize how much I love my cats. I’m too lazy to keep up with birds. They are destructive, noisy and bite. And that’s the good side of them!! They are beautiful animals and now I know best left to someone else

    The big pincers are pedipalps and small ones are the helicerae, same naming as in spiders and majority of arachinda in general. The exceptions are some acari species like ticks that also have special names for their pedipalps and helicerae.

    I would say that I am indifferent to 'creepy crawlies', as I call them, simply because I don't get much exposure. But I don't automatically kill any that I see, and watching your videos has improved my knowledge of, and my indifference to, them. I certainly smiled at your efforts to film them. It was kindof like herding cats. LOL

    Would feeding them under a blacklight maybe help make filming scorpion feedings easier? At least, the scorpions whom glow under that light. Might also make for an interesting video visually too.
