 Is this safe?

Hey, yesterday I didnít have any money to buy crickets to my scorp. from the pet store so I decided to go bug hunting and caught an American Roach ( those big winged ones) and my scorp. actually ate it! Is that ok or is it unhealthy for my scorp.?

Roaches are fine for them. The only thing youíll want to be wary of is any pesticoids or other chemicals that may be in use in your neighborhood as that can kill your scorpion if it ingets a tainted bug.

I donít talk to my scorps...thatís the scary part!
Ok, ok Iíll be honest, I do talk to them, I cheer them on when itís meal time and scold them when they get all pissy and give me threat displays when I open their lids.

I wouldnít.
Some species of frogs are poisonous/venomous and could kill it.
Also, scorpions rarely eat prey that is more than 1/3 their body length (not including tail).
If it is an adult, you could probablly get away with feeding it an anole lizzard or a pinky mouse but that would be about it.
