Scorpions are members of the Arachnida class and are closely related to spiders, mites, and ticks. They live in deserts, Brazilian forests, British Columbia, North Carolina, and the Himalayas.
There are around 2,000 scorpion species, and only around 30-40 contain poison that is fatal enough to kill a person.
Scorpions mainly eat insects, but can live on very little.
In the southern Iranian province of Khuzestan, scorpion bites are the fourth major cause of death.

Just for the record, a scorpion bite is completely harmless – it’s the tail that holds the nasty side.
