I like to welcome everybody out to correlation we're going to talk about scorpions today. Scorpions are not insects. Scorpions are not insects. okay scorpions and spiders are called arachnids and they are not insects. Why is that important? Insects groom their body. All the time if you've ever watched a fly up close, it’s doing this thing all the time they always lick and clean their body just like a dog does. Let's go over a few more details this is a makeshift scorpion here we’re looking at it upside down pretend like it's upside-down laying on its back scorpions do not breathe like human beings breed they don't have lungs they don't have a circulatory system they don’t inhale, exhale no insects do scorpions, spiders, arachnids no invertebrates anything that crunches when you step on it. Has a skeleton on the outside of its body called an exo-skeleton Anything that or any method of breathing and what they do have are little tiny holes on the bottom side of their body and those holes allow air to go into their body and their organs the bodily organs are just floating in like blood there's no pump there's no heart there's nothing just floating in blood and the oxygen exchanges through these holes. Now in addition to the underside of the body there's also a little hairs very small hairs called cilia
these holes are called spherical known hairs called cilia and what the spider or more specifically the scorpion does with these hairs scorpions are almost completely blind they can’t see hardly anything but they rest their body right on the ground so that the little hairs are just touching the ground just barely and when cricket hops by it’s a form of sonar they actually can tell where the cricket is and how big the organism is that's coming after them by the vibrations in the earth scorpions can live six months without water or food six months Scorpions can live five to fifteen years five to fifteen years that’s a long time most people that fact will shock people they are like oh my gosh this is not a problem that's going to go away in the winter time is it If you have one female inside your wall have twenty five to forty five baby scorpions she births, birth those scorpions alive she doesn't lay eggs she burst them arrive if you can zoom in on this picture I'm not sure it might be too small she burst those scorpions alive they climb up on her back and they'd piggyback you can see them on her back all around inside your walls and as they get bigger and bigger they fall off so she spreads them around in your walls in a couple of months they can start bringing and they will breed with sisters and brothers.
