Ok it is Tuesday so I guess that means it is indestructible creatures day, today’s creature is:
The scorpion, ok most of us know they can be dangerous but did you know that they have been around for around 400 million years, like how the hell do they know that. They live in most parts of the world but are especially good at surviving in deserts, deserts not desserts just saying.
Deserts are know for being stinking bloody hot during the day and oh so bloody cold at night and scorpions don’t care they can survive a huge range of temperatures from -47.2°c (-53°f) till as hot as45°c (113°f).
Also they can live for up to a year without food, what the hell is with that. When they do catch some prey they eat a lot. They can slow their bodies down, so that they use up the food very slowly, they get all the water they need from what they eat and they don’t poo much because they use every bit of their food to give them energy.
If a scorpion stings itself it isn’t affected by its own venom, however, it can sting and kill another scorpion of a different species, they do often hunt and eat each other. Who knew……….not me……..

Yikes, there are some benefits to living in Midwestern USA. 😄
Same can be said for living in Newie
I sometimes think about moving to a warmer climate, like Florida, and then I think about the lizards and spiders and decide no. 😄
I sometimes wonder what Mother Nature was thinking when she invented some of the creatures we share our planet with.
I know what you mean
