Scorpions prefer dry climates and are mostly active at night or on cloudy days. You can find them in shady locations (under rocks and vegetation, in underground holes) during the day because they are sensitive to the loss of moisture and avoid the sunlight.
Scorpions invade their prey’s home and use their stinger to inject the neurotoxic venom, which paralyzes or kills the prey. Scorpions can only take in their food in a liquid form and will dispose of any solid matter before ingestion. This is also how they obtain water, from their prey. Scorpions’ prey consists of insects, centipedes, spiders, birds, lizards, mice, centipedes, other small bugs and even other scorpions.
