Interesting Facts about Scorpion

Scorpions are one of the oldest known terrestrial arthropods, with fossils dating back over 430 million years. They possess a unique feature among arachnids: a venomous stinger on their tail used for defense and hunting. Interestingly, scorpions glow under ultraviolet light due to substances found in their exoskeleton, a phenomenon that still puzzles scientists. Despite their fierce reputation, only a small percentage of scorpion species have venom potent enough to be dangerous to humans. Scorpions are also known for their maternal care, with mothers carrying their newborns on their backs until they are capable of surviving on their own.
