Under Blacklights This Scorpions Glow in the Dark!

In normal light this scorpion is black, but under blacklights they glow in the dark! They have large pincers used for defense, and for grabbing and tearing prey. They also have a curled tail with a venomous stinger at the end of it. While the stinger can be deadly to insects and small animals, to humans it is similar to a bee sting.
