Nala, The Scorpion's Sting

Scorpions are arachnids that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Outlands.


Scorpions have eight legs, two pincers for holding, grabbing and tearing, as well as a sharp stinger that is laced with venom that can paralyze or even kill.


Scorpions are arachnids that are closely related to spiders and ticks. A highly nocturnal species, scorpions come out during the night to hunt for small insects and spiders, even their own kind; larger species of scorpions are able to kill and eat smaller vertebrates such as rodents and lizards. The toxicity of scorpion venom depend on the species. Some can simply cause paralysis, while others can be extremely lethal. Scorpions can be found in a wide range of habitats from deserts to rainforests.

Depending on the species, scorpions use different methods of killing prey; larger scorpions rely on their massive claws to crush prey while smaller species use their deadly venom to paralyze prey. 

Although still a mystery, scorpions are able to glow when exposed to ultraviolet light. 


The Scorpion's Sting

A scorpion named Sumu is sent by Scar to sting Simba during the Kumbuka celebration, prompting the Lion Guard and Makini to journey into the Outlands to acquire the cure in the form of volcanic ash.
