I can't believe I haven't posted on this guy yet. He's like the king of scorpions. No, even better: he is the emperor of scorpions. These arthropods are actually a lot more bark than bite. They look tough, but their sting is far from the nastiest of its relatives.

They make good pets - look at one underneath a black light. Not only that, but thanks to Fear Factor and the Scorpion Queen, we know that you can do a lot with them. I love animals that are so multi-purpose.
