    Striking as the droplets are falling or at the droplets where they are sitting?
    I was just thinking that if they droplets are falling, then striking at them would maximise the chances of consuming the water, and would be easier than climbing up to where the droplets are forming?

    he strikes at the falling ones. yeah, that's a good point. it does make more sense. have you seen any of yours do this? i just wonder if he thinks they're prey or if this is a common behavior.

    yes, he strikes at forceps regardless of what is on the end of them lol. this is why he is El Scorpio

    One of my cresties will strike at anything that moves. Everyday I poop scoop all my enclosures in addition to a full cleaning every 1-3 weeks and I use a large spoon/scoop to do it. She strikes at it every time. It's pretty funny to watch.

    Just some unique quirk that some of them have I suppose.

    It's the hunting instinct - as mentioned^, some just have an instinct that's more obvious than others, and will hunt anything that moves. Water droplets are a great example. My one female hunts those...and shadows.
