Scorpions of the World

Unread post by Yoda » Wed Feb 05, 2014 2:00 pm

Scorpions of the World
by Stockmann & Ythier
ISBN 9782913688117

An in depth book on Scorpions
Chapters dealing with anatomy, biology and behaviour

Then there is a section that lists the species by continent with a brief description, the venom potency/danger and a photo.
A huge amount of species are covered

The book was not cheap.
But well worth it for anyone interest in these fascinating Arachnids.

No problem :thumbs_up:

This book was £75 (R1,350). Plus postage. :twisted:
But I am fascinated by Scorpions (could it be something to do with it being my Star Sign?)
So for me, it was a must.
