After looking at your scorpion photos, I thought you might be interested in this image.
You are our new hero. These Food Chain images are awesome, but we have some questions. Please tell us more about this Scorpion that appears to have been feeding indoors. Was it living inside your home? Also, the lighting is very different on the two images, with the redder image having more critical focus. Why are the lighting conditions different? We found a very similar looking Scorpion on The Flying Kiwi, but it is listed as unidentified. Since the head of the spider has already been devoured, we didn’t think we would be able to identify your Wolf Spider, but we found an image on Scott Leslie’s site that looks very similar to the Wolf Spider in your images. Alas, it is not identified beyond the family. We love that you have supplied images to our site that document the maternal behavior of Scorpions.
