the emporer scorpion, (or any scorpion for that matter)
has an interesting trait when under ultraviolet light.
they glow a bright phospherecent yellow-green.
one mnute they are shiny black with a slight green hue, then you hit them with the black light and WHAM,
they just go yellow, almost white. this is something that truly needs to be seen to appreciate, it does not photograph very well. plus they move around,
its tripy as it gets,
i have 3 mature emperor scorpions (pandinus imperitum)
and ive always found them facinating to watch, they are rather docile and easy to handle with very remote risk of stinging which would be relitively harmless anyway, they require very little care and prefer humid. warm, forest-like condidtions. (more jungle than desert) this partucular speceis grows large and weighs about as much as a small cellphone.
they live 4-6 years in captivity and are relitively easy to breed.
heres a few shots of one of my scorps


and heres an image from some guys site showing an emperor scorpion under ultraviolet light




ive never had a UV light before but i got a $20 (cdn) gift certificate from work for walmart. that nicely covered the cost of a party-style UV light
i rigged it up to my scorpion tank, they dont seem to like the UV light, too intence to i leave it off most of the time.
heck, it hurts my eyes to look in its general direction anyway.

but if you have a party pad rigged for UV. perhaps a tank of scorps (any speceis) would serve as a cool addition.

you dont even need to shine it right on them. they shine brighter than florecent posters.

That's fascinating, what an amazing creature!
I wish we had scorpions in this country.. as long as they didn't sting.
Actually, I'm pretty glad we have only 1 poisonous creature and it's extremely rare (katipo spider)

Strange - I wonder what benefit that would provide the scorpion - as most insects have ultraviolet vision wouldnt it stand out?
You dont have scorpions in New Zealand? We have them in Australia.

Seeing chess pieces come to life on the board and talk to you while on LSD - $5

Buying a gram or two of Shrooms and watching the spirits come to life - $15

Seeing a scorpion turn neon turquoise under a UV light - Priceless

There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's the Shroomery.
