Description

Size: 8~10cm
LD50: 0.32 mg/kg

Androctonus australis (Linnaeus, 1758) aka the fat tailed scorpion is a medium-sized scorpion which can grow up to 10 centimeters in length. This hardy desert scorpion can be found in North Africa, Somalia, the Middle East, Pakistan and India.

The name Androctonus australis is derived from the Greek word Androctonus (roughly translated as "man-killer") and the Latin word australis (translated as "south") which together translate as "southern man-killer".

Unlike most other animals that live in deserts, Androctonus does not dig burrows to protect itself from a sandstorm. Instead, it can withstand sandstorms powerful enough to strip paint off steel, without any apparent damage
