This framed scorpion display features one of the 2,000 known scorpion species. Luckily, we know of only 30 to 40 that have a strong enough poison to kill a person. The scorpion uses a spur-shaped stinger at the end of its tail to deliver a venom that is a neurotoxin, a chemical that affects the nervous system, ultimately killing or paralyzing their prey. All scorpions are nocturnal hunters that feed on other arthropods, though some larger species can prey on mice, frogs and other small vertebrates. In Afghanistan, some even smoke the tails of the scorpions to get intoxicated.
