I've owned my Asian Forest Scorpion (Mr.Pinches) for about a year now. After looking up caresheets I found that they are very easy to care for. As long as you give them somewhere to hide they are happy, "A happy Scorpion is one you don't see", and so it's safe to say Mr. Pinches is just about the best hider in hine n' seek ever. He doesn't come out very often and when he does it's the late evening hours.
That being said when it's feeding time he gets very defensive and it's funny to watch him throw his pincers up and take a mealworm down.
A scorpion with as much potency in it's stinger as a bee sting but a pinch that could give you a nasty wound, somthing not to be handled unless you are eith er a seasoned keeper or wearing thick leather gloves!
