|This article is about an older version of DF.|
The giant desert scorpion is a high-value creature commonly found in deserts and although they aren't found in large numbers they are dangerous combatants.
- They are capable of using a paralyzing poison.
- They cannot be stunned because they feel no pain.
However, only their tail is poisonous and they don't attack with it often, needing to latch on to their prey with their pincers first.
When butchered they will leave no bones or skull, and the "hide" they will leave is called chitin, but can be processed the same as any leather.
Some frustrated scorpions have been reported to be invading fortresses to destroy wooden constructs and their [BUILDINGDESTROYER:1] supports this claim. Due to the relative scarcity of wood in their biome they often end up going well out of their way to find wooden constructions to rip up; archery targets have proven to be a popular, er, target.[Verify]
