You might’ve learned, at one point or another, a legend saying scorpions will sting themselves. Why would they do that? Well, the story goes that scorpions sting themselves in situations where death is imminent; they’d rather die on their own time than be injured by a force outside of their control. That could sound reasonable in your opinion, but it might sound a little crazy. If that’s what you think, you’re right. Scorpions do not sting themselves purposely.
In reality, when scorpions are put in a threatening circumstance, for example: being engulfed by fire or taken out by a pest control specialist, they wiggle around and sting everywhere. If a scorpion is capturing its prey or going against a bigger animal it stings all around the animal in order to make it confused. So if a scorpion ends up in a threatening situation, it is understandable that it is going to do the same. At times, when senselessly stinging, a scorpion may accidentally sting itself. The truth is, this is never purposeful. Another thing to note is this would not cause the death of a scorpion. A scorpion’s poison won’t hurt it.
