Onward my noble steed! TO GLORY!
Drive me closer; I want to hit them with my claw!
The Crabs are going to war. It is likely we march to our Doom.
Last March of the Crabs.
Like terrifying glow-in-the-dark toys, these animals luminesce at night, thanks to a cuticle that absorbs ultraviolet light reflected from the moon and emits a greenish-blue glow. Their luminescence may be part of a warning system that lets them know when the moonlight is so bright they risk being seen by other predators. It would be good to stay out of the way of those predators, since many of them are other scorpions: a scorpion’s diet is 40 per cent scorpion. The glow may also attract another of the scorpion’s favourite snacks, the moth.
