Scorpion macro photography

Scorpion macro photography

This set of macro photography gallery is dedicated to a specimen of scorpion found in the countryside of Pisa, Italy. This kind animal is a predatory arthropod of the order Scorpions within the class Arachnida. As other small arachnids living in Europe this is usually not dangerous for human and its sting could be compared to the one of big bees.

This scorpion has been found under a bank of sand near some pieces of cork barks stored on a field waiting to be transformed in flower vases. This specie is not common in the place where it has been found and probably its origin where related with the sand coming from the hills near Pisa or the cork coming from Sardinia island.

In these macro photos is possible to see the main parts of the anatomy of the scorpion this specie: Cephalothorax (or Prosoma), Abdomen (or Mesosoma), Tail (or Metasoma), Claws (or Pedipalps), Legs, Mouth parts (or Chelicerae), pincers (or Chelae), Moveable claw (or Manus), Fixed claw (or Tarsus), Sting (or Telson) and Anus.
