Description

A blue scorpion that often resides in wetlands and seaside areas. Though scorpions are commonly believed to live solely in arid climes, various kinds of scorpions can be found living in all kinds of environments. Sea scorpions prefer living in humid regions, especially the rocky areas along the seaside, and are even able to move short distances by swimming. They use their large pincers to prey on fish and small monsters.
