scorpion definition and meaning

What is a "scorpion"?

A scorpion is an arachnid characterized by its segmented body, pair of pincers (pedipalps), and a curved stinger on its tail. They are known for their venomous sting, which they use to immobilize or kill prey. Scorpions can be found in various habitats around the world, including deserts, forests, and grasslands. While some species are harmless to humans, certain types, such as the bark scorpion, possess venom that can be medically significant and cause pain or even life-threatening reactions. Despite their potentially dangerous reputation, scorpions play an important ecological role as predators, helping to control insect populations in their respective ecosystems.
