Description

Probably the best known desert creature is the Scorpion (SCORPIONES). Over 1,400 different kinds inhabit a huge variety of
habitats across the world. The scorpions of the Gobi Desert have developed excellent protection against the extreme
climatic conditions of the region: their chitin shells radiate heat, thus keeping them cool. What?s more, they are nocturnal
creatures ? during the day, they prefer to stay under rocks or in mouse-holes. Scorpions are carnivores. Their poisonous
sting helps them to defend themselves against their enemies and to kill their prey.
