Fun Fact: This arachnid has over 2000 species and one can be found in most countries around the world. Scorpions give birth to live young in litters ranging from 4 to 9 babies. The new scorpions instantly climb on their mothers back and are cared for until they can hunt on their own.
Fun story: There is a story in my family. It is something I have been told since I was young. I had a great, great, etc, grandfather who was in the civil war. He was a young man and had not started a family.
During the preparation for an upcoming battle he was stung by a scorpion leaving the man in a sickbed while his fellows went to fight. Nearly every man was killed in this battle.
After he finished his service, the man went home and found a wife and had children which through time led to my birth. Is it true? Maybe, but one thing is for sure—I don't look at scorpions the way most people do.
Thanks everyone see you tomorrow.
