Do arachnids have male reproductive organs?

Yes, though none have a penis. In general sperm is produced in the genitalia at the underside of the abdomen, and the male arachnid transfers that to his pedipalps (in the case of spiders at least); pedipalps are the frontmost pair of appendages next to the mouthparts. Later, he inserts his pedipalps into the female's genitalia on her underside and mates this way.

Can a sting from a scorpion kill a human?

Yes, scorpion venoms are optimized for action upon other arthropods and therefore most scorpions are relatively harmless to humans; stings produce only local effects (such as pain, numbness or swelling). A few scorpion species, however, mostly in the family Buthidae, can be dangerous to the point of killing humans.

How is a lizard adapted to a desert?

Because a desert is an arid climate with intense heat that lizards need to survive. They are cold blooded and need the terrain they live in to regulate their body temperature rather than regulate it themselves like mammals. The fact that their skin is scaly and rough helps as well because with skin like that you do not lose any moisture like other creatures, so they can go long periods of time without water, not unlike the cactus with thorns and big hollow like leaves that trap water and hold moisture for extended periods of time because obviously in a desert is does not rain all that often.

Is it true that people have been getting sick from glow in the dark tattoos because of the phosphorus?

People used to get sick from glow-in-the-dark tattoos, but I don't think they do anymore. In the early days of photoreactive tattoo ink, the ingredient that made the tattoo glow was called EverGlow. It was never intended for use in tattoo ink--it is intended to be used as an ingredient in road paint!

What they do now, is to encapsulate a biologically-safe pigment in little microspheres of teflon, which itself is biologically safe.

I don't go to enough discos to need a tattoo like that.

AnswerPeople can get sick from the chemicals used in the dye. You are injecting a foreign substance into your body. AnswerAny foreign substance injected into the body can cause a reaction. They "old-school" phospher-inks are not used anymore and we're never tested by the U.S.D.A. for human consumption, ie. tattooing.Currently, a new "safe" version of this ink is available, though I personally do not use it in any tattoos that I apply. AnswerI am unsure if you mean "Glow in the dark" or "blacklight reactive" tattoos. I have never even heard of a substance that can be safely put into the skin that contains a glowing element. Blacklight reactive is another matter. I have a blacklight reactive tattoo on my face and have had no side effects for over 6 years. I looked at the MSDS sheet for the B.R. ink and it contains nothing that would cause any ill side effects. Having said this be very careful about it due to the fact that not EVERYONE will use the same B.R. ink that was used on me.Former Tattoo Artist AnswerI too have a blacklight tattoo... have never had problems with it and I LOVE IT! AnswerI would think people can get sick because the chemical that makes an object glow-in-the-dark is actually RADIOACTIVE!

Animal Behavior

Can an emperor scorpion kill another emperor scorpion?

A scorpions venom has no effect on the scorpion or any other scorpion of the same family. However, if the venom is injected directly into the scorpions nerve ganglion(which would be quite an unlikely event outside the laboratory) , the the intoxins in the venom will come into play, and could possibly kill the scorpion within minutes.

2nd answer : Yes, any scorpion can kill another one (same species or not) A scorpion is immune to ITS OWN venom except if it is injected directly in its nervous ganglion and is not immune to the venom of other scorps. (same species or not). They can as well be killed by crushing and dismembering. Emps are said to be the most social scorpions but from time to time they will munch on each other due to dominance, size, overcrowding...

They are predators.

Do scorpions get hydrated by there prey?

Yes, they get most of their water through eating their preys but some scorpions like the Emperor will enjoy a regular drink and even a bath! Desert scorps on the other hand do not need water top up.
