Scorpions are master architects, constructing homes that include both a sunning platform and a cool room that retains humidity, according to new research.

The findings, which will be presented Thursday, July 3, at the Society for Experimental Biology's annual meeting, prove that homes built by animals other than humans can be incredibly comfy and functional, even when they're located in extreme environments.

On the one hand, it's very logical (because in order to survive they would have had to develop this kind of function) -- on the other hand, it's a bit surprising and leads to some interesting research ideas.

I'm just thankful we don't have them in my country. Spiders are enough for me.
