Summary, etc.:
To many, the curved tail of a scorpion is a scary sight. Though it uses a deadly poison to subdue prey and protect itself from predators, only 25 species of scorpion have a venom very harmful to people. Readers learn the particulars of the scorpion stinger as well as the arachnid's diet and habits. Full-color photographs bring readers close to this small carnivore--which most would avoid if seen in person! Fact boxes add further detail to the main content, engaging readers with science information consistent with bug units included in the curriculum.
