They eat other insects and they're mostly nocturnal, so I guess it's a little freaky to hear one crunching up a beetle in the dark. HA!
You got something against Scorpions?
Snakes? Bah, they're too big to be REALLY stealthy.
No, Nothing against scorpions at all. I tried to bring one home, but couldn't get customs to let me do it. It's funny, because the job that I do requires the use of a blacklight, and we would go out at night and shine the blacklight on the ground. You should've seen those creatures light up. That was actually an easy way of finding them outside.
