In wildlife there are so many dangerous and poisonous animals or creatures, you must have to avoid. Scorpions are one of them. They are really dangerous and sometimes deadly too. Here I tried to make a list of the most dangerous and deadliest Scorpions on Earth.
1. Deathstalker (Leiurus quinquestriatus)
The deathstalker (Leiurus quinquestriatus), also known as Palestine yellow scorpion, Omdurman scorpion, Israeli desert scorpion. They are yellow in color and about 30–77 millimeters in long. The deathstalker is known for its venom, it is a powerful mixture of neurotoxins, with a low lethal dose. A sting from this scorpion is very painful, it normally would not kill a healthy adult human, but young children, the elderly, or infirm (such as those with a heart condition or those who are allergic) would be at much greater risk for its life-threatening allergic reaction.
2. Yellow Fat-tailed Scorpion (Androctonus australis)
Androctonus australis is a North African desert scorpion. They can grow upto 10 centimetres in length. Androctonus australis is one of the world’s most dangerous scorpions for its very potent venom, equivalent to a black mamba snake. It causes several deaths every year.
3. Arabian fat-tailed scorpion (Androctonus crassicauda)
The Arabian fat-tailed scorpion (Androctonus crassicauda) is a species of dangerous scorpion. They can be found in North Africa and the Middle East. Some authorities report a sting from a Arabian fat-tailed scorpion can kill an adult human in seven hours. Reactions vary considerably, but children are especially vulnerable.
4. South African Spitting scorpion (Parabuthus transvaalicus)
South African Spitting scorpion (Parabuthus transvaalicus), also known as Black Spitting Thicktail scorpion, South African Fattail scorpion, South African Giant Fat Tail scorpion, Transvaal thick-tailed scorpion or dark scorpion. They can be found in Southern and Eastern Africa. They can spray their venom up to 3 feet long. This venom effects in the eyes is pain to temporary blindness. Permanent damage can occur if the venom is not washed from eyes.
5. Striped bark scorpion (Centruroides vittatus)
The striped bark scorpion (Centruroides vittatus) is an extremely common scorpion. They can be found throughout the midsection of the United States and northern Mexico. They are not so aggressive. The sting can be extremely painful. For some, the worst passes in 15–20 minutes, but not uncommon to remain very painful with numbing sensations for 2–3 days.
