Information About Scorpions

Eating Habits

There are thousands of scorpions found throughout the world but not all of them are deadly. Some only possess poison strong enough to kill their prey, while others may contain enough poison to kill a human being. Scorpions can adapt or modify these poisons based on the threat level found in specific environments and prey.

Even at this rate scorpions remain very fast and able to catch prey.
