Emperor Scorpion (Pandinus Imperator)
Emperor Scorpion Features:
The Emperor Scorpion, or the Imperial Scorpion, as many call it has terrified people for centuries. It is not just the knowledge that it’s venomous but also its larger-than-normal size that frightens any who see it. It should come as a relief, therefore, that not everything is what it looks, and the venom of this particular breed of scorpion is not as potent as many other smaller species. Due to its large size, getting stung by one is still going to be an enormously painful experience. Read More About Emperor Scorpions here.

DEATH IS RARE!
All scorpions glow in the dark-even after death, even fossilized! A thin, transparent film (hyaline) in the outermost layer (cuticle) of their exoskeleton contains a protein that fluoresces. At night in the Arizona desert, you can see scorpions within a 20-foot radius by shining a black light (ultraviolet light) around. They glow green-yellow or bright florescent green. Newly molted (babies) scorpions don’t fluoresce. As the cuticle hardens, it glows more.
Fluorescence, however, is not really ‘glowing in the dark’ in the sense of emitting light on their own, without (ultraviolet) illumination, like fireflies or light sticks. They don’t actually glow in the dark. They do, however, fluoresce in black light (ultraviolet light) meaning that if you shine ultraviolet light on a scorpion (dead or alive!) then they will emit a fluorescent green glow. Even after hundreds of millions of years, after all other cuticle layers are lost, the hyaline layer remains, fossilized in rocks, the scorpion still glows.
