Storyboard Text

  • This is a comic strip about natural selection. The sand scorpions will start out 50 generations before the scorpions developed poisonous exoskeletons and a spotted body. The last two cells of the comic strip will be about the sand scorpions' lifestyles after their helpful adaptations.
  • The beige scorpions have a greater chance of survival during the day time. Small hawks will tend to go for the easier prey to snatch and fly away to a safe place.
  • The brown scorpions have a greater chance of survival after the sun sets. The scorpions rest near the rocks or in the sand by the rocks at night and the brown scorpions are harder to see by the rocks.
  • Nocturnal lizards come out at night to hunt for prey and its easier for them to see the beige scorpions.
  • Over time, they developed a poisonous exoskeleton and a spotted back. The toxins from the poison will slowly poison the predator if it picks up, touches, or attempts to eat a scorpion.
  • Their spotted back would help them blend in easier with the sand which allowed them to stop using the rocks as a place to hide. It's now way more difficult to spot the sand scorpions.
