When mopping the other day I noticed a spot on the tile that was shaped somewhat like a scorpion.  Turns out, it WAS a scorpion!  Our first scorpion sighting here.  We caught it and observed it for a day.  We even tried to feed it.  Dawson looked up what they liked to eat and then promptly went outside turning over rocks and such to look for small insects.  We found a tiny roach and the boys hoped to see the the scorpion sting it, grasp it in it pincers, and devour it, but the scorpion didn't follow their script.  We did get to see quiet a show though as the scorpion pranced around with it's tail up and pincers raised as the roach scurried about.  And the next day we took the scorpion and roach to a secluded spot in the woods and released them.
