Did You Know Scorpions ...
Each year several thousand people die due to a scorpion sting. However, the mortality rate is so high because of around 25 highly venomous species in Mexico, parts of South Amarica, northern Africa, the Middle East, and India. Fortunately, none of these species occur in Australia, and there has not yet been a confirmed deadly scorpion sting here.
Scorpions glow in the dark when exposed to UV (black) light. That's because of the mixture of waxes and complex sugars which waterproof their exoskeleton.
Scorpions are nocturnal creatures which means they are active at night. They mainly feed on small insects, like spiders, centipedes, and other scorpions. Larger scorpions, however, might also hunt vertebrates, like small mice and snakes.
Scorpions can bear up to a hundred babies at a time. The baby scorpions are born alive, unlike other insects, and have a very soft outside shell – exoskeleton. Once born, the little scorpions will crawl on their mother's back for a period of 10 to 20 days, until their shells harden. Then they crawl off and start living on their own.
