I thought I would try to turn a negative into a positive with my scorpions situation by capturing them and keeping in them in a glassed habitat in the house. Perhaps there’s money to be made selling scorpions.
The first thing I did was to clean out a 10 gallon aquarium that was being unused.
I then added cactus from the back yard.
I then added some sandy soil (commonly referred to as dirt), also from the back yard.
I then added a pile of rocks, from the front yard this time.
I then added the scorpion (Vaejovis flavus). This one came from inside the house.
The first scorpion died after keeping it in the tank for about a month. This was despite providing it several crickets that it quickly ate.
Since Saturn the cat came along, I rarely get a scorpion before she kills them. Plus she is has eliminated the scorpion food supply in the house so I don’t know that I will get much more of them. The tank currently sits empty.
