Scorpions: Armed Stingers

Scorpions: Armed Stingers

Did you know that scorpions glow blue or green under ultraviolet light? That mother scorpions keep their eggs inside their bodies as the baby scorplings develop? That scorpions can wait a whole month between meals?

You’ll discover many fascinating facts in this detailed book, along with clear diagrams of body parts and close-up photos of many varieties of scorpions from around the world. Also included are a glossary and a list of helpful books and reliable websites with more information about scorpions.

Part of the Arachnid World series, Scorpions lets young naturalists examine nature’s stinger-tailed predators from a safe vantage point. Remember, the smaller the pedipalps, the larger the stinger!
