Creature Feature!

The Jurassic Fact of the Week is highlighting our Emperor Scorpions. A very common party animal, these tough little guys are the largest of all scorpions in the world. However, they are the least venomous as well.

Mandy and I dub ours "Batman" and assure the kids that if he did sting, it would be as harmless as a bee sting. The Emperors are naturally docile and actually use their pincers more often than their stinger. However, even THEN they mostly use their pincers to "feel" around their environment with the many tiny hairs that cover them. So, its definitely a great creature for groups of kids...very hardy, and tame. Also, it creates QUITE a stir, especially among moms, when it first comes out!

Emperor Scorpions originate in Africa, and can get about 8 inches long! They eat crickets or super worms mostly...they grab them with their pincers and chew. As tiny tiny babies, they are a strange, almost transparent white and ride on their mom's back all day...what a life. Want to know something really awesome?? Under a blacklight, these critters GLOW turquoise!

Wicked!! Come see some for yourself...hold one...even take one home for $19.99!!

When you watch the video from Garmin or see any of the advertisements, Garmin leads you to believe that this watch will collect reliable data for all three multisport events. It's reasonable for someone to assume this watch is often worn in a race and collect GPS data within the water, since, certainly, SWIMMING may be the initial event in a triathlon.
