  Water Scorpions

 

Thailand

Two black Water Scorpions (fig.) and a crab, caught from a rice paddy with a chonsae. Note the enlarged pincer-like front legs, used for capturing prey and the long breathing tube at the end of its abdomen, which actually consists of a pair of half-tubes, capable of being locked together.
