dc.description.abstractIan Engelbrecht discusses scorpions in Southern Africa. Southern Africa has the most diverse population of scorpions in the world, with 150 described species, with an estimated 400 species within the region, ranging from some of the largest to the smallest and the most and least dangerous. Ian discusses mating patterns, including mating dances and placating behaviour. Many scorpions give birth to live young, and can have between 6 and several hundred young, with females showing strong maternal behaviour. Also discussed are the role of scorpions in arid regions as both predators and food sources. Citizen scientists can contribute by sending in scorpion photographs.en_US
