A Scorpion In Nasarawa Preying On A Cockroach 3 Times Its Size (Photos) by Cadamlk: 9:43pm On Mar 09, 2018
I took a trip to Nasarawa state, Keana local Govt to be precise. In the course of my briefings, I was told to be wary of scorpions and their deadly snakes.

Anytime I move around in the when it is dark,I should carry an illuminating object in order for me to avoid the two deadly animals.

I had to cut the discussion with my friends short in order to have a cool bath against the blazing heat of the northern sun. I barely moved two steps with my touch light on ,lo and behold ,what I saw on the wall was a scorpion grabbing a cockroach three times its size in its claws.It already stung the cockroach to dead and was ready to make a meal of it.

Being my my first scorpion experience,I decided to take some few pics before landing my slippers on its head. I had to kill it because it posed a potential danger to me and people around

Why did you dispossess the scorpion of the cockroach, will you eat the cockroach?

You'd have looked for something to cover them both and study them. You for learn something new.

Both are not friends of humans,the predator carries deadly poison while the prey carries deadly diseases cool .I don't have to kill it to eat it, I killed it to eliminate them from my environment . wink

You could've moved it to safer environment instead of killing it.

By the way, a scorpion using its neuron toxin can paralyze and kill prey ten times its size.

You just interrupted a beautiful cycle of nature.
