Water Scorpion by melvynyeo Water Scorpion by melvynyeo
The water scorpion is not a true scorpion, but is a large, aquatic insect that belongs to the order of insects known as the Hemiptera or 'bugs' . Its flattened body is greyish brown on the upper surface; the wings, which are held close to the body, and the abdomen below the wings are pink . All true bugs have sucking mouthparts, known as a rostrum or 'beak' . The water scorpion's first pair of legs are very powerful, and are used to seize prey, but the most notable feature is the remarkable 'tail', a thin projection from the rear of the bug which is used as a siphon, to take in air . Very young larvae seem to be 'tailless', as the tail grows at a different rate to the body
