The Black Scorpion
is a passive creature found in the desert biome. It has 5 HP.
When caught with a Bug Net, it drops a Black Scorpion (Material) which can be crafted with a Terrarium to make a Black Scorpion Cage, or set free again by dropping it.
Black Scorpion are damaged by Monsters, so they frequently die wandering into Vultures and Antlions.
Although similar to Scorpions, the Black Scorpion has larger claws, a bulkier tail and sting, and is longer than its cousin.
