Scorpions are closely related to spiders and ticks. However, scorpions have a
hard outer shell called an exoskeleton, as do crustaceans – such as shrimp,
crab, crayfish and lobster.

There are more than 1,500 species (types) of scorpions, generally ranging
2.5 to 9 inches long.  All scorpions have venom, however less than 2 dozen
species have venom that’s deadly to human. Scorpions are carnivores
(meat eaters) that usually feed on other bugs and insects, but some species
eat snakes when possible.
