There are approximately 235 Wind Scorpion species in the Unites States. Most Wind Scorpions are brownish or yellowish, covered with short bristly hairs. Their enlarged, forward-projecting mouthparts function like scissors to cut up prey. The majority of Wind Scorpions live in warm regions, feeding on termites and other arthropods. Wind Scorpions move about in a rapid, zigzagging fashion. The long legged males are incredibly fast. They are sometimes considered to be dangerous, but are incapable of producing venom and typically bite only if handled carelessly.
