Headless monster

A dead scorpion

A dead scorpion

I found this scorpion, already dead, a couple of days ago. It’s beginning to look a little the worse for wear.

Only a part of it would fit under the microscope at any one time.

What amazes me is that despite being relatively long and thin, it doesn’t appear to have a head.

In fact it doesn’t have a head as such. Its eyes are on its chest or its legs are on its head, depending on how you look at it.

It really does look weird up close.

      Good thing it’s not any bigger! 🙂
