Why is Scorpion Venom so Expensive
Why is Scorpion Venom so Expensive ?
Scorpions are nocturnal animals that live in tropical areas and deserts and are active during the night. The “venomous” factor of scorpions makes them dreadful and, at the same time, fascinating. Most species possess a sting comparable to that of a bee sting, while others have a venomous bite that can be lethal to humans.
What makes them so lethal? Well, that is the “neurotoxin factor” of their venom. It is a chemical that affects the nervous system, ultimately killing or paralyzing their prey, which could be either human or any other animal. But the real question to discuss is what is their use, and what makes them so expensive?
A gallon of the yellow scorpion (Leiurus quinquestriatus) costs $39 million.
