Scorpions are predatory arachnids. They have eight legs and are easily recognized by the pair of grasping claws and the narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over the back, ending with a venomous stinger.

Scorpions, especially those found in media, are most often depicted as being highly venomous and dangerous animals. Even in real life they have a fearsome reputation, with about 25 species being known to have venom capable of killing a human.
