A Child's Book of Scorpions of Medical Importance
This is a Weblog about art, culture and history. It requires a strong stomach, but should reward the reader with helpful moral lessons. This Weblog is only indirectly related to scorpions, although I might mention them now and again. Scorpions are fascinating animals: primitive in appearance, and displaying few outward signs of the benefits of hundreds of millions of years of evolution. They resemble arachnids from the dawn of life. But, examine their venom under a powerful microscope, separate and analyze its components and you will begin to see where the invisible hand of evolution has exercised its constant and deliberate art: a stunningly rich cocktail of powerful toxins, of all shapes and sizes, which incapacitate systems in multitudinous ways across the full range of prey, competitors, enemies, and predators the scorpion might encounter. Stay, look carefully, and think, and you will gain insight that one day might save your life.
