I love the UV-light image! Thank you for sharing it Ethne. I wonder why scorpions glow in UV light? What is the purpose of them glowing in UV light. At least it provide us with an opportunity to see them at night!

Thick tailed scorpion

Parabuthus brevimanus

Arachnids
Notes

Found under stone with UV light. This guy is pretty venomous, but due to the fact that is quite small, the venom yield would likely not be deadly.
