Scorpions, found mostly in the western and especially the southwestern United States, are up to 7.5 cm (3 in.) in length. They have eight legs and a pair of pincers like a crab has. The stinger, which injects venom, is located at the end of a narrow tail that curves around and over the back of the scorpion's body.
