Last week, I posted a gif of a cute, but baddass scorpion mouse howling at the moon. The source video didn’t have that much information about them, but this one gets a little more in-depth.
These little fluffy fools actively seek out venomous scorpions in the arid Arizona desert for food. But, they are in fact not so foolish, because not only are they unaffected by the scorpion’s venom, but they literally feel no pain!
I have said before that the Canadian lynx is my favorite wild animal, but the scorpion mouse may very well take that crown at some point.
