 Just found pic, thought it would go well with this post

Hi
I know its a bit late but I found this pic and was to cool to ignore.
Scorpions in general have three sets of eyes.
One pair located in the top centre of the carapace are called the median eyes.
There are two more sets of lateral eyes on either side of the front
Heres a pic showing one set on one side.
