The Scorpion

The scorpion, a relative of the spiders, ticks, mites and harvestmen, is represented by about 1300 different scorpion species around the world all having tail that is tipped with a venomous stinger. In the U.S. the scorpions are represented by 90 naturally occuring species.

Although it is normally regarded a desert creature, scorpions can also be found in savannahs, grasslands, forests and caves.

Scorpions are predators that feed on different spiders, insects, centipedes, and also on other scorpions. Despite their ability to defend themselves with venom scorpions often fall prey to centipedes, tarantulas, lizards, birds and mammals. The scorpion can be a great pest controller in the garden so if you find one of the less venomous scorpions in your house it is better to move it out a safe distance from the house than to kill it.

The venom of the scorpion is a mixture of neurotoxins that is unique for every species. Even though scorpions are often much feared there is only 20 species of scorpion worldwide that is considered dangerous to humans. The species Centruroides exilicauda is the only native U.S. scorpion known to cause death, and that's only in rare cases.

More information about scorpions is available from Desert USA
