A scorpion is an invertebrate animal with eight legs, belonging to the order Scorpiones in the class Arachnida. The body of a scorpion is divided into two segments: the cephalothorax (also called the prosoma) and the abdomen/opisthosoma. The abdomen consists of the mesosoma and the metasoma. All scorpion species possess venom.

Scorpions were native to desert climates, most notably the planet Arrakis. They were often hunted by Fremen children as entertainment.
