We have been taught to fear scorpions in any form. But scorpions usually sting either to subdue their prey or to protect themselves. In fact, Earth has two thousand scorpion species, but only a few dozen are deadly to humans. With vivid descriptions of scorpions' life cycle, body structure, habits, and habitat and beautiful, realistic illustrations, this new entry in the popular Strange and Wonderful series explores one of nature's feared and misunderstood creatures.

"Veteran science writer Pringle delivers another stinging success with this fascinating look at the similarities and differences among the many varied species of these much feared but mostly misunderstood arachnids. . . The informative and engaging text is complemented by Henderson's detailed, realistic watercolors, which reveal the great diversity among the many species of scorpions. Budding arachnologists will find this an enlightening introduction." —Kirkus Reviews

"Pringle's careful research and Henderson's painterly eye are clearly in evidence as they explore the world of scorpions . . . Libaries should make room for this handsome, informative work." —School Library Journal
