Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Lesser brown scorpion stinger (Isometrus maculatus). Isometrus maculatus is a predatory arachnid that has grasping pedipalps and a stinger that contains a potent toxin. A scorpion's stinger or telson is at the end of its long tail. A pair of glandular sacs produces and stores the various components of the scorpion's venom in the abdomen. At the tip of the telson is a small opening from which the venom travels into the prey. After birth young scorpions are carried around on their mothers back for 2 weeks as they develop. A species that was introduced in Hawaii. Introduced in Hawaii. Magnification: x1.1 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
