No one wants to find scorpions in their home or get stung by one.  But they are very interesting and unique arachnids.

  1. Scorpions give birth to live young! They ride on their mother’s back for protection until they can safely disperse.
  2. Scorpions have a long life span. They can live between 2-10 years in the wild or up to 25 years in captivity!
  3. Scorpions can live up to a year without eating and can get enough water to survive from their meals. They can survive up to 2 days underwater!
  4. Scorpion glow in the dark! Under ultraviolet light a scorpion can be seen easily in the dark.
