Centruroides vittatus Striped Bark Scorpion

Posted Sep 13, 2014

Being raised on a cattle ranch, we had scorpions as pets even if we didn't want them. The hot August month would force them to find cool shelter, and unfortunately that was our house.

These sneaky animals will hang on the ceiling, and drop on you in your sleep. So, it's always a good idea to scan the ceiling, walls, and bed for them before going to sleep.

Feeding him was a show. He like crickets, and was prone to play with his food.

I am not sure how long they were supposed to live, I think I caged him as an adult, because he didn't last but a few months. Yes, I put air holes in the jar. ;)
