While we were researching we ran into the inquiry “What do scorpions consume?”.
Scorpions are nocturnal in the wild, hunting for food at night . Because lizards, birds, bats, and mice seek out scorpions as food, they conceal themselves during the day. Scorpions consume a wide range of insects, spiders, and smaller animals . They acquire water from tiny pools or puddles to survive.
Are scorpions carnivores?
Scorpions are strict carnivores , so you won’t find any fruits or vegetables on their plate. When food is scarce, or during natural disasters, scorpions have a remarkable ability to slow down their metabolism so that they can survive for long periods of time with little or no food. Some species can stay alive on as little as one insect per year.
The sting of a scorpion may be painful or even deadly, depending on the species. Of the 1,500 species of scorpions worldwide, only about 20 to 25 are regarded as dangerous. A scorpion’s venom is a mixture of compounds, including neurotoxins that affect the victim’s nervous system.
Their menu includes insects, lizards, snakes, small rodents and even other scorpions. If a potential meal wanders near their burrow or nest , they sense the vibration and attack with a vengeance, often killing prey that are much larger than they are.
Scorpions are not a social species that work together and have a queen , like a bee or an ant. They are individuals fighting for survival. If there are ample food and shelter, scorpions may exist in high densities which can appear to be a nest.
Our answer is that When food is scarce, or during natural disasters, scorpions have a remarkable ability to slow down their metabolism so that they can survive for long periods of time with little or no food . Some species can stay alive on as little as one insect per year.
Also, how do scorpions kill their prey?

Another common question is “Can scorpions climb?”.
