Former Baywatch beauty Carmen Electra is mourning the death of her pet scorpion.

In the summer (05), the sexy actress found the stinger crawling around her Hollywood home and decided to keep it - much to the dismay of her rocker husband Dave Navarro.

She says, "He walked toward the light. He died.

"I took very good care of my scorpion, because I felt bad (for him). I didn't want to kill him and I didn't want to just let him back out, so I fed him grasshoppers and I went to a pet store to find out what to do.

"I guess they have a short life span. I don't know."
