Asked in Spiders, Arachnids, Scorpions

Do arachnids have male reproductive organs?

Yes, though none have a penis. In general sperm is produced in the genitalia at the underside of the abdomen, and the male arachnid transfers that to his pedipalps (in the case of spiders at least); pedipalps are the frontmost pair of appendages next to the mouthparts. Later, he inserts his pedipalps into the female's genitalia on her underside and mates this way. ...

Asked in Snakes, Arachnids, Scorpions

Which is more toxic a small scorpion or a large scorpion?

All scorpions have venom; let's just get that out of the way. Their venom is not a defensive mechanism (meaning, they didn't evolve it to protect themselves from us), it's how they catch their prey. This means their venom is adapted to neutralizing the things they normally eat -- namely, invertebrates. So first off, a scorpion's venom isn't really tailored to affecting humans. Very small scorpions such as the bark scorpion found in Southern Florida can sting and the sting is painful...
