There's a scorpion in my house

Posted Jun 07, 2014

I like pets with fur. Never in my wildest imagination did I believe I'd ever have a scorpion of any variety in my home. Having sons completely through that idea the window.

I want to say negative things about the scorpion, however, I realize that my opinions are due in large part to Hollywood movie makers and don't have anything to do with the unnamed scorpion in my house. So, to be fair, my sons love their Rusty Thick Tailed Scorpion. (Call me crazy, but does that not sound like the name of a world destroying monster?)

I have to give the scorpion-let's call him Rusty-some credit. He has been very easy for my often lazy sons to care for and he has provided hours of entertainment for them and their creature loving friends. They enjoy finding crickets and meal worms to old Rusty.

I have heard discussions about our scorpion being a bit aggressive. I can assure you that if I witnessed any aggression, this scorpion would have been given away immediately. For now, I have to admit, he is a great source of entertainment for my sons and despite my phobias (thank you, Hollywood), we will keep him.
