Third successful night scorpion collecting

It had rained the previous day and night, and given that my last successful search was the day after a rain I decided to search again tonight. Although the weather was not hot (the scorpions prefer hot nights) I found three good sized giant desert hairy scorpions in a short time. Two were very large and one was large enough to keep.

Given that now both my successful searches have been conducted after rainfall I can at least conjecture that the activity of the giant desert hairy scorpion is increased by rainfall (all of my searches on nights not after rainfall have been unsuccessful).
