Pulmonoscorpius (known in the series as simply a Giant Scorpion) featured as one of the main animals in Episode 5. The high oxygen level in the Carboniferous Period allowed this creature (and many others) to grow to very large sizes.

In Prehistoric ParkEdit

The Bug HouseEdit

Nigel Marven woke up after a storm and uses a special ultraviolet light to show the giant scorpion. The creature climbs on crew memeber Bill but Nigel grabs him by the stinger and the Pulmonoscorpius use his pincers to attack Nigel. Nigel tells Bill, who woke up, he had a 3 foot long scorpion on him!  

Nigel looked for a Pulmonoscorpius. He found a female nearly a meter long under a rotted-out fallen lycopsid log. She had thin claws, so Nigel was worried, because with scorpions, small claws mean big sting. He got her attention with a thin stick and worked his a hand behind her and grabs her telson just in front of her sting. As he put her in a dog carrier, she stung the back of his right hand as he let her go. Luckily, back at the park, Suzanne says it would had an effect on him if it would have. Also, the venom had not evolved enough to be able to kill an advanced animal such as a mammal, and therefore not Nigel either. The scorpion was moved to her new home and is currently living in The Bug House without causing any further incidents.
