Kala Jengking

Scorpion, Kala Jengking

Scorpions are known for their scary looking sting on the tip of their tail. However they are also armed with huge pincers or pedipalps, at the front of their body. The pincers is a weapon of choice when the scorpion is hunting. The tail sting is usually used to fight off attacks, they rarely wastes their precious venom on prey. This one is a junior scorpion, the adults is black in colour.

This small scorpion is moving among the thorns of durian fruit, lucky i spotted it before grabbing the durian.
