Yes, scorpions are predominantly nocturnal creatures. They hide during the day in cool places and come out at night to hunt and feed. This behavior is primarily to help them avoid the daytime heat, especially in desert and arid environments where many scorpion species live.
During the night, scorpions hunt for insects, spiders, centipedes, and other small animals. They have specialized structures known as pedipalps (the “pincers” you see at the front of a scorpion) to capture prey and a stinger to inject venom.
Despite being nocturnal, scorpions can become active during the day if the conditions are suitable, like in cooler weather or after a rainstorm. Their nocturnal lifestyle and ability to stay hidden make them more elusive, which is why many people might rarely encounter them, despite their wide distribution.
