Fluorecence sous UV

glowLes scorpions émettent une fluorescence quand on les éclaire avec de la lumière ultraviolette (UV). Cette fluorescence est due à une substance qui se trouve dans une fine couche de leur peau mais qui n’a pas encore été identifiée. Les scorpions qui viennent de muer ne fluorescent pas. Il faut attendre quelques jours pour qu’ils recommencent à fluorescer sous les UV.
