The scorpion

It is a rank of invertebrate animals belonging to the arachnids, has eight feet, and lives in hot and dry areas, hiding in burrows and cracks, and under stones and rocks, seeking moisture, to avoid the heat of the sun. There are scorpions in the world come in about 2000 species.

Scorpions are very harmful insects, which often live in the desert, especially large-scale scorpions. These scorpions can be eliminated in some effective ways that we will learn in this article to avoid harm to them


Most scorpions reproduce by the interaction of males and females, although many types of scorpions reproduce by early reproduction.
At the time of mating, a male scorpion searches for the female, and when he finds it, begins flirting (mating dances). In some species, males and females meet face to face, lift the abdomen and move in rings. Males approach females by starting to move forward and backward. These movements can last about 10 minutes. The scorpion mother needs several months or even more than a year to complete her pregnancy and it is time to give birth. The female can develop each time 2 to 100 small scorpions, depending on the type of scorpion. At birth new born scorpions that do not exceed a few millimeters climb thier mother’s back. To remain there and protect the mother as a first step and continue this stage from birth to the fourth week of age. And then gradually begin to leave her back and gradually dispensed from the protection of the mother. There is no truth to what is said that children are devouring the mother, as the children grew up on her back suggest that.

The scorpion reaches sexual maturity within 6 months to 6 years, with its size doubling from 4 to 7 times more. Some species can live up to 25 years.
Scorpions are predated by other animals such as birds, amphibians and snakes as the main threat to their lives although they use the same poison commonly used to kill their victims in self-defense against these enemies, although these poisons are not always successful.
When they are born, scorpions are not equipped for independent living, because they are still in the embryonic stage. Where their bodies are filled with a material that gradually turns to form internal organs and then begin to abandon the mother. In addition, its movement is slow because its legs are glued together and the jaw parts are not fully developed. All this is gradually changing until it becomes an adult.
