Scorpion (order Scorpionida). Scorpions are arachnids that are found in warm, dry areas of the world. They are nocturnal, feeding mainly on spiders and insects. The long, curled abdomen bears a sting (orange) that is used to paralyse or kill prey held in the large pincers (lower left). It may also be used in defence.
