Scorpions have a long sting - bearing tail and pair of pincers on long arms ( pedipalps ). They have 6-12 eyes but not very good eyesight but have very good low light sensitivity which helps navigation by moonlight. They prey at night using the sensory body hairs and slit organs on their legs that pick up vibrations and scents. Crushing their victims the scorpion digests it by pouring digestive juices on the prey and breaking it up with its powerful claws.
