This miniature sheet features black scorpion (Heterometrus longimanus), and the Malaysian Earth Tiger Tarantula (Cyriopagopus schioedtei).
Black scorpions, one of the largest scorpions in Southeast Asia, are nocturnal. Their food includes other arachinids and insects, using their pincers or inject it with venom, causing death. They usually won't attack a human. Fortunately the worse that will happen to a human is swelling about the same effect as a bee sting. The female usually has a larger body han the male, although the male usually has larger pincers. Animals that want these scorpions for their prey include birds, centipedes, lizards, and rats.
The Malaysian Earth Tiger Tarantula is an extremely aggressive with the trademark tiger stripes on its abdomen and long red hairs on its legs. It feeds on various insects and can grow to about 22cm leg span and a carapace length of above 3cm. It dwells primarily in the lowland and foothill of forests where it lives in hollow trees many metres up. Adult females are almost entirely found in large mature trees, but younger ones can be found behind loose bark, in rock crevices and in man made structures.
