Dear colleagues

While excavating some dung beetle galleries, I stumbled across some 
scorpions
inside, some adults and some young. Is this any common?

Would they be there just for shelter, or trying to feed on dung beetles? 
I find it
hard to believe scorpions would be able to penetrate the exosqueleton of 
adults,
and young are usually protected inside capsules.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Carlos
