Scorpions

A little quiz to try out this cool thing I forgot about a long time ago.

How many scorpion stings are reported each year in Saudi Arabia?
a- 100 to 500
b- 500 to 1,000
c- 1,000 to 10,000
d- More than 15,000

“The 20 varieties of scorpions found in the Kingdom are poisonous to various degrees. While some are fatal, others cause lesser complications, although these can be painful,” said Abdul Rahman Al-Asmari, head of the Scorpion Studies Center and deputy director of research at the Armed Forces Hospital (AFH) in Riyadh.

Al-Asmari said that a major difficulty in treating scorpion poison was that the anti-scorpion venom used in one region would not work against the same type of scorpion in another. So, separate antivenoms have to be developed for each variety of scorpions in different regions.
