Scorpions can survive by eating only one meal per year, can be frozen or submerged in water and survive. They are found on every continent except Antartica, and can live in a wide range of environments, including deserts, grasslands and rain forests. The evolutionary history of scorpions goes back 430 million years.

While we think of their venom as toxic, scorpions are used in both Eastern and Western medicine.

To learn more about these amazing arthropods, join us at Coronado Center at 10:00 am on Thursday, January 10th.
