The giant hairy scorpion is the largest scorpion in North America. They are an aggressive, nocturnal, active scorpion that is usually yellow with a dark top and has lobster-like pincers. When a suitable victim wanders by, the scorpion grabs the doomed creature with its pincers and stings the prey. They, along with 50 species of invertebrates, are living in the Insect Zoo at the San Francisco Zoo.
