Fudge the emperor scorpion

Like all arachnids scorpions have eight legs, but, unlike spiders, they also have a pair of large pincers and a long tail with a venomous stinger at the end. They have a hard outer exoskeleton that comes in a variety of colours including black, brown, blue, yellow, and green. When food is scarce, a scorpion can slow down its metabolism to the point where it can survive for up to a year on a single meal.
