Scorpions - Death on 8 Legs
Skorpione - Tod auf 8 Beinen
Wherever they turn up, one thing is always the same: they are photophobic creatures and they are poisonous. Some of them are among the most poisonous animals on Earth. They have been on the planet for 400 million years and have since conquered all continents, settling in the most varied habitats, including arid areas as well as hot and humid rainforests: scorpions! Around 1,500 different species are known worldwide. A little prick of their needle-sharp sting is enough to kill insects, mammals and even humans. This film follows the mysterious traces of scorpions, which, with their 8 legs, belong to the arachnids. Through rainforests and deserts, this documentary illustrates how they live and hunt and sometimes even become the victims of other predators. A visually stunning documentary that shows how perfectly the oldest land animal in the world has adapted over the course of 400 million years, full of drama and sensational extreme close-ups.
