Everyone knows that scorpions are evil and deadly . . . right? But do they really deserve their bad reputation? In fact, scorpions come in a mind-boggling variety. There are at least two thousand species, but only a few dozen of these are deadly to humans. With clear, informative text and detailed, dramatic illustrations, this latest book in the popular Strange and Wonderful series explores the life cycle, habitat, and history of one of nature's most misunderstood and fascinating creatures.
