This picture shows two scorpions engaged in lovemaking. Love is perhaps not the most appropriate word as they still have the natural scorpion urge to kill and eat each other. The first step in the process is that each grabs the others pincers, neutralising the threat. These are by far the most dangerous weapons as scorpions are immune to their own venom.
It must be horrific having a sexual partner who at any moment might, without warning, suddenly and viciously tear you to shreds. It must be a lot like having it off with a midwife.
