What preys on scorpions?
Road Runners are one of their predators.
Aside from cannibalism, large centipedes, spiders and some ants have been recorded as predators. Lizards, a few snakes frogs and toads, birds and mammals also take their share.
In the west (America), scorpions form a large portion of the diet of grasshoppers, mice and burrowing elf owls. The Shovel-nosed snake also from the desert southwest appears to feed almost excusively on scorpions and centipedes.
In Africa and Asia, baboons, meerkats and mongooses systematically search the ground to find scorps, break the telsons or metasomas to avoid a sting before eatig them.
Yes, they get most of their water through eating their preys but some scorpions like the Emperor will enjoy a regular drink and even a bath! Desert scorps on the other hand do not need water top up. I offer them water overnite every two or 3 months but get most of their needs from well hydrated crickets. -J
