Talladega National Forest, Alabama, USA – A scorpions new home has been spotted in Australia’s southern states.
The scorpion was spotted in an area in the Australian outback known as the “Black Forest Ham”.
The Australian Department of Environment and Heritage (DEDE) said the scorpion has been nicknamed “The Scorpion” after its natural habitat.
The Department said the female scorpion is the first female scorpions found in the area since the 1950s.
The species of scorpions has been extinct since the late 1800s.DEDe said the species has been found in several Australian regions.
“They’re very shy and are very secretive, so they are very difficult to spot and to identify, but there is an increasing number of sightings of these little creatures across Australia,” DEDE spokesperson Jenny Smith said.
The area is considered a desert region because of its low elevation.
