The scorpion is a feared creature by many for its sharp pincers and its long stinging needle on its tail. Scorpions are an arachnid that has 8 legs.

Don’t worry, scorpions are not out to get you either. Their prey includes small insects, centipedes, and spiders. Unlike spiders, scorpions do not lay eggs and are viviparous. This means that they directly give birth to living young after the eggs are retained in the female body.

A cool fact about scorpions is that they can sometimes go up to a year without food!!
