Aristotle + Scorpion

I am doing a research project in school and was wondering if anyone had any sources or information on Aristotle's study of scorpions. So far, I have this,

“locality is an important
element in regard to the bite of an animal. Thus, in
Pharos and other places, the bite of the scorpion is not
dangerous; elsewhere – in Caria, for instances – where
scorpions are venomous as well as plentiful and of large
size, the sting is fatal to man or beast…”

Does anyone have any other knowledge to share on this topic?
