A deadly giant scorpion that lives in the desert areas, with a pair of powerful claws and venomous tail. To conceal itself from birds of prey, its natural enemy, it prefers to hide in the shadow of rocks, waiting for a chance to strike. Paralyzing its target with poison, it swoops in for the kill after its prey has been weakened. For desert travelers already weakened by heat and dehydration, the scorpion's sting can often be lethal. An ample supply of antidotes is recommended.
