If you're searching for an unusual pet to impress your friends with, consider Leiurus quinquestriatus. This is one of the most venomous scorpions around. Its sting can be extremely painful for adults and fatal for children. The venom is a powerful cocktail of neurotoxins, with a low lethal dose. One component of the venom, the peptide chlorotoxin, has shown potential for treating human brain tumors. This aggressive arachnid comes in different shades and hues depending on the specific locality. By being active at night, it manages its temperature and water balance, important functions for survival in dry habitats. The flat body helps it hide under stones, bark, wood, or other objects on the ground where it searches for prey or waits in ambush, sensing approaching victims by touch or from the vibrations they cause. The literal translation of the binomial name of this species is "five-striped smooth-tail". Leiurus quinquestriatus belongs to the family Buthidae which contains 89 genera and 971 species.
