Scorpions Glowing in the Light – Black Light that is…

March 10th, 2010 | Comments Off | Posted in Scales And Tails

Scales and Tails entertainer Jeremy Westerman presented a great workshop on Scorpions last month.  We learned about different types of Scorpions, their habitats, how to search for them in the wild, and that they glow under a black light.  We got an up close and personal….sometimes too personal (in the mouth!) look at some scorpions and then we went on a hunt all over the shop trying to find some painted scorpions!  It was really fun and we have the pictures to prove it.  Take a look!

All about the Scorpions

January 30th, 2009 | Comments Off | Posted in Scales And Tails

Scorpions are so cool!  We were so excited for the large turnout we had for our scorpion night.  To all those that came, Thank You!!  For those of you who were not able to come, here is what you missed. 

We started out our night learning about different types of scorpions from S&T owner, Shane Richins.  We first learned about the least deadly of the scorpions, the African Emperor. Then we learned about the two most deadly scorpions, the Death Stalker and the Yellow Fat Tail.  And finally we learned about a few scoprions local to Utah like the Desert Hairy and the Bark Scorpions.

After the learning came the fun!  We turned off all the normal lights and turned on the black lights.  All true scorpions glow bright green or yellow under a black light.  Then we went on a scorpion hunt.  Little did we know that there were TONS of (fake) creepy crawlies hiding all around the shop!  The scopions glowed while the snakes and bugs didn’t and suprise!  Sometimes they jumped out at us!! 

We spent the rest of the night taking a closer look at all the scorpions and other critters in the Scales and Tails shop while we munched on Scorpion suckers, mmm, yum!
