The Cyprus scorpion (Mesobuthus cyprius Gantenbein) is
yellow to yellow-brown in color, and may reach 60-75 mm in length.
Though it is rare, scorpions have been known to enter houses on the
island, and their sting hurts as much as a bee sting.
There have been instances where these scorpions have crawled into shoes
and under bedsheets, stinging the unlucky people that then
inadvertently disturbed them.
The Cyprus Scorpion can commonly be found in gardens, where it hides under stones during daytime.
