Scorpions eat bugs.He might have ment that he fed the crickets veggies for added nutrition then fed them to the scorps.

I agree he may have meant he gutloaded. Tho, wouldn't surprise me otherwise. Maybe he figured poking at it and it grabbed veggies means it ate them??

i have seen pictures of people feeding their T's fruits, but they do not actually eat them, they just suck the water out. I doubt very much that a scorpion would actually eat a fruit or veggie. and just to add, i don't think there have been an conclusive studies to show what a scorpion, or tarantula, or any invert for that matter, actually needs in terms of nutritional intake values.
