Camouflage is one of the highlights for this species of arachnid that is studied in the Amazon. " Scorpions in particular have a characteristic that makes them stand out among other animals. If we use an ultraviolet light source and place it on the scorpion, its body becomes fluorescent. There is a change in the wavelength of the light that is reflected from the scorpion to us. Making it much more visible than the light around the scorpion. This causes a difference in contrast, making the animal much more visible to us," commented Tiago Carvalho, a zoologist at Musa, the Amazon Museum.
