Are you worried yet???? Don't be, Spencer is a turtle!!!!! But he sure loves to eat scorpions. The other night Morgan took out the black light and caught five scorpions on our back fence. The scary thought is that these scorpions were on our back fence!!!! So after I got over that fact, he took off the stingers on their tails and then fed them to our little turtle "Spencer", not to be confused with our awesomely huge turtle, "Dot".
