scorpions

Scorpions belong to the family of Arachnida. Spiders and all other arachnid species have eight legs. A couple of differences between spiders and scorpions is that spiders use their fangs to inject venom, whereas scorpions use the telson at the end of their tail. Unlike spiders, scorpions do not have teeth and rely on their crab-like pinchers called pedipalps to prevent the escape of the prey. Since all scorpions look similar to each other besides their color and size that they are nearly the same. However, each scorpion species is unique, including the alien-looking family of whip scorpions. All scorpions capable of delivering a venomous sting, but generally, do not pose an immense threat to humans.

In the majority of cases, if a healthy adult is stung, medical treatment is not imperative. Scorpions become fluorescent under ultraviolet light either produced from a black light or moonlight. The blue-green radiance arises from a substance located in the scorpion’s exoskeleton called the cuticle.
