Depending on the toxicity of their venom and size of their claws, they will then either crush the prey or inject it with neurotoxic venom. This will kill or paralyze the prey so the scorpion can eat it.
Scorpions have an unusual style of eating using chelicerae , small claw-like structures that protrude from the mouth that are unique to the Chelicerata among arthropods. The chelicerae, which are very sharp, are used to pull small amounts of food off the prey item for digestion into a pre-oral cavity below the chelicerae and carapace.
Scorpions can ingest food only in a liquid form; they have external digestion. The digestive juices from the gut are egested onto the food and the digested food sucked in liquid form.
Any solid indigestible matter fur, exoskeleton , etc. They have a very efficient food storage organ and a very low metabolic rate combined with a relatively inactive lifestyle. This enables scorpions to survive long periods when deprived of food. Some are able to survive 6 to 12 months of starvation.
Their waste consists mostly of insoluble nitrogenous compounds, such as xanthine , guanine and uric acid. Parthenogenic reproduction starts following the scorpion's final molt to maturity and continues thereafter. Pregnant scorpion Sexual reproduction is accomplished by the transfer of a spermatophore from the male to the female.
Scorpions possess a complex courtship and mating ritual to effect this transfer. Mating starts with the male and female locating and identifying each other using a mixture of pheromones and vibrational communication. Once they have satisfied the other that they are of opposite sex and of the correct species, mating can commence.
The courtship starts with the male grasping the female's pedipalps with his own. In this "dance," the male leads the female around searching for a suitable place to deposit his spermatophore. The courtship ritual can involve several other behaviors such as juddering and a cheliceral kiss, in which the male's chelicerae — pincers — grasp the female's in a smaller, more intimate version of the male's grasping the female's pedipalps, and in some cases injecting a small amount of his venom into her pedipalp or on the edge of her cephalothorax,  probably as a means of pacifying the female.
When the male has identified a suitable location, he deposits the spermatophore and then guides the female over it. This allows the spermatophore to enter her genital opercula , which triggers release of the sperm, thus fertilizing the female.
If mating continues too long, the female may lose interest, ending the process. Once the mating is complete, the male will generally retreat quickly, for unknown reasons; sexual cannibalism is infrequent with scorpions.
Birth and development[ edit ] Compsobuthus werneri female with young Unlike the majority of species in the class Arachnida , which are oviparous , scorpions seem to be universally viviparous. Before the first molt, scorplings cannot survive naturally without the mother, since they depend on her for protection and to regulate their moisture levels.
