Scorpions in Saint George

Scorpions are predatory arachnids in the order Scorpiones. All arachnids, like spiders, have eight legs. Different from spiders, scorpions have a curled tail, and a pair of crab-like pinchers called pedipalps, which they use to hold onto their prey. After looking at different scorpion species, we may think that other than the scorpion’s size and color, they are merely the same. Still, the truth is that families of scorpions are entirely different from one another, for example, the beastly-looking family of whip scorpions. Each scorpion has a stinger full of venom, but for the most part, scorpions do not pose a serious risk to humans.

In most cases, if a healthy adult were to be stung, medical treatment would not be necessary. One intriguing fact about scorpions is that when exposed to ultraviolet light such as that produced by a black light, they glow a vibrant blue-green due to the presence of fluorescent chemicals in the cuticle.
