Scorpions are one of the most ancient animals on the planet. They and their ancestors can be found in the fossil record as far back as 435 million years, much earlier than the arrival of the first dinosaur!
These arachnids have two powerful grasping claws which they use to restrain prey as well as a stinger at the end of their long, segmented tail. The potency of the venom in their stinger varies greatly depending on species but most scorpions aren't much of a threat to humans.
Most species of scorpions are found living in deserts but some are also forest-dwelling.
All scorpions like to hide but regardless, will often wander from their hiding places especially at night, making them unique display animals.
An incredible feature of the scorpion's exoskeleton is that it is fluorescent! Shine a black light on a scorpion in a dark room and it will glow bright green.
Scorpions are regard as being very hardy pets with simple environmental needs. All of them are carnivores and can be maintained easily on a diet of crickets.
