Scorpions are fascinating arachnids. We have spent over 3 months handling and caring for 2 Black Emperor Scorpions. This video shows one of them feeding on a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. We have also managed to capture our scorpion as it appears under ultraviolet light. We hope you enjoy this gross yet fascinating footage.
