The most dangerous scorpion lives in North Africa. It is called the Death Stalker.
It can sting a dog and it will die in five hours and if it stings a person it will die in three hours.
Most other scorpions poison take seven hours to kill something.
Scorpions eat other insects but they eat each other when they can't find other food.
Lizards sometimes eat scorpions!
