My name means ‘glowing’. I’m from the tropical rainforest of Southeast Asia.
I love the outdoors!
These scorpions spend their time on the forest floor, beneath logs and will even burrow into the soil.
I can ‘feel’ the space around me.
Asian forest scorpions don't see well, so they rely on touch. Stiff hairs on their body are used to sense their environment.
I can be a bit grumpy.
Asian forest scorpions have little venom but can be more aggressive than some other species of scorpions.
I have difficulty making friends.
The Asian Forest scorpion is not a social animal and likes to be alone.
I shine bright!
Scorpions glow brightly under ultraviolet light.
