Science Cafe: The Secret Lives of Scorpions with Dr. Lauren Esposito

Scorpions are an enigmatic group of animals: though recognized and feared by all, there are many aspects of their biology that remain a mystery. These unique creatures are found everywhere from the world’s highest mountain ranges to caverns 600 meters below sea level. They fluoresce under ultraviolet light, exhibit complex courtship rituals, and may even hold the key to curing some forms of cancer. Nonetheless, there are still dozens of new species discovered each year and basic natural history of these secretive animals is still in many ways unknown to us.
