Scorpion kept in Captivity

Around 2am, our roommate woke my boyfriend up quite frenzied about a certain scorpion traveling across the living room floor. He didn’t understand what the big deal was and covered it with a plastic bowl and went back to sleep. The next morning we created a small habitat from my old betta tank and there he(?) is to this day, larger and seemingly quite happy, as you can see by the cricket he munching on. Can you enlighten us as to what type of scorpion it is? He has grown significantly since we first met and gave him a home 🙂
