Haymakers have very long, thin legs. Their fused cephalothorax is connected to the abdomen without constriction. The body of the haymakers is brownish, up to 9 mm long, and the legs reach 54 mm. Haymakers do not emit cobwebs and actively hunt small insects and molluscs at night. Haymakers live on tree trunks, walls of houses, fences, soil surface, in grass and plant litter. If someone grabs the haymaker’s leg, it will easily come off, and the haymaker can flee. But the lost legs are not restored.
Scorpions are the largest arachnids, ranging in length from 1 to 20 cm. They are common in countries with warm and hot climates. In our country, they are found in the lower reaches of the Volga and in the Caucasus. The scorpion’s fused cephalothorax fits snugly against the voluminous abdomen. It consists of a wide front and a narrow back. The abdomen ends in a curved hook with a sharp tip. There is a poison gland at the base of the hook. With the injections, the poison enters the victim’s body. This is how scorpions attack prey and defend against enemies. During the day, scorpions hide in burrows, and at night they hunt small animals. Female scorpions usually give birth to live cubs.
