Hi Aaron. I have a few species of arachnids that I keep at home as pets. The social behavior of the Emperor scorpion (Pandinus Imperator) particularly intrigues me. I remember one occasion in which an adult female pushed away a juvenile with her tail while she was eating, rather than displaying defensive behavior like I would have assumed she might do. Anyway, my question is: what are the known theories regarding fluorescence in scorpions?
