Bark Scorpion

From the Series Desert Animals Searchin' for Shade

The sun shines on the hot desert sand. Meanwhile, a small animal with lobster-like pincers and a long tail hides under some tree bark. After the sun sets and the air cools, the creature--an Arizona bark scorpion--leaves its hideout and starts to hunt for prey. Welcome to life in the desert! Young readers will learn all about the desert environment where the bark scorpion lives, as well as its physical characteristics, what it eats, and how it survives in its hot, dry home. Colorful photos and diagrams, clear text, age-appropriate activities, and critical-thinking questions will keep young readers turning the pages as they take a closer look at this intriguing desert dweller.
