Scorpion facts:

Their Scientific Name of Scorpions is Scorpionidae. There are over 2.650 described species, and you can find them in subtropical areas and deserts. They live everywhere on earth except for Antarctica. Scorpions are very easy to identify. You can easily recognize them by their front pincers and the tail with a stinger. Most species are not dangerous to human, but there are some who are. 25 species of scorpion have venom deadly enough to kill a human.

Their coloring varies based on where they live. They often blend into rocks, bark, and sand. Yellow and black are the most common colors of scorpions, but they can also be brown, red, or orange. Desert scorpions tend to be lighter colors while forest scorpions are typically black. When under ultraviolet light, all of them will appear blue or blue-green!

These animals prey mainly on bugs such as grasshoppers, termites, beetles, and wasps. They also eat other scorpions. Large species sometimes prey on animals such as small reptiles and mammals. Different types hunt and kill prey in different ways. For example, species with large powerful pincers will use their pincers to crush prey. Scorpions with smaller pincers but stronger venom will sting their prey. Some of them chase or ambush prey while others wait in burrows.

In general, the emperor scorpion is one of the largest species with an average length of nearly 20 cm. The emperor scorpion also has the  largest pincers, which are very similar to a lobster. Due to its large pincer size, the emperor scorpion has relatively weak venom. The smallest scorpion is a species found in Texas that measures only 23 millimeters. Most Scorpions are around 5 cm in size.
