“Harmlessly scuttles around the desert looking for food. Fish are barely attracted to these.
— The Bestiary
Scorpions are harmless critters that can be caught with a Bug Net and do not normally interact with the player in any other way, except in that they can be killed by both players and enemies. They have 5 health and usually serve as ambient entities in Terraria. Scorpions only spawn in the Desert. Its counterpart is the Black Scorpion.
Most naturally spawned Scorpions can be caught with a Bug Net, and carried in the player's inventory (or placed in storage). If a critter caught with any Bug Net is taken from inventory and "used" (placed), it is again released into the environment at the cursor and behaves as usual.
A Scorpion Cage occupies a 6x3 space. It displays an animated Scorpion inside.
