Advertisement I put this up in another thread then thought it made sense to make an independent thread. If anyone cares about scorp history, not too long ago they unearthed the largest prehistoric scorp yet known. It was a sea scorp (where they all came from) that measured 8 feet long (Called jaekelopterus rhenaniae). . heres a link to the info on bbc if anyone is interested: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7104421.stm Apparently, this scorp is close to 2 feet longer than the largest one previously known (I thought the largest previous fossil found was 3 feet long, but i guess they found a 6 foot long one after I read about the 3feet long one a few years back). Anyway, the implication is that scorps (as well as other arachnids, insects and crabs) were much larger in the past than we had once thought.
