Flat rock scorpion review

By

County Durham, United Kingdom

Posted Nov 27, 2012

Amazing pet to own, mine is only a few month old judging by size maybe 9-10 months but I've only owned mine for 4 they are a rather skittish species not aggressive at all to large objects (hands/fingers) unless provoked and even then it would much rather find a place to hide rather than waste time and energy fighting also people say scorpions are relatively slow creatures this may be true of the adults of the species but the young juveniles are extremely fast, watching my scorpion scurry about is fascinating but the speed of its pincers when it ceases/attacks prey is unbelievable, even more so when it grasp and stops a cricket larger than itself and eats the entire amount! I've yet to handle my flat rock simply cause of the size it is also very active during the night always out and about but only rarely out during the day. They are very tidy creatures not messy at all apart from the odd bit of left over food they leave but normally they eat every bit of their prey item but overall a very pleasant and affordable pet to own I recommend highly for anyone with an insight into scorpions but doesn't fancy something a bit daunting.
