Scorpion Paperweights - Mesobuthus martensii

The Science:

Scorpions are predatory arthropods in the class Arachnidae. They have eight legs like spiders, but are easily recognized by their claws and curved, segmented tail tipped with a venomous stinger. Scorpions can be found all around the world, and they flourish in a variety of habitats. Although they can be fearsome creatures with a highly unpleasant reputation, there are only about 25 known species that possess venom strong enough to kill a human. Generally speaking, the toxicity of a scorpion’s venom can be gauged by its claw-to-stinger size ratio: the larger the claws, the less potent the venom.

The Story:

This real Scorpion specimen, in a small dome-shaped resin setting, is known as the “Manchurian Scorpion” and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries as a remedy for chronic pain, paralysis, epilepsy, and more. These paperweights are available in several different colors - each measures approximately 1 inch to 1.25 inches in height and 1.75 inches to 2.5 inches wide. A colorful desktop accessory, this little scorpion makes a great gift for kids!
