Name: Twitch                                  Species: Asian Forest Scorpion (Heterometrus longimanus)

Age: 9 Years Old                              Sex: Female

Twitch is a large bodied, chunky jungle scorpion that spends most of her time hiding in her burrow. At the age of 9 Twitch could live for another 5 years! Although it doesn't look like she is doing anything, she is using the tiny hairs on her legs to feel for the micro vibrations given off by insects passing by. Once she senses an insect near by she uses her powerful claws to catch it and rip it apart!
