The world's most lethal scorpion, the deathstalker, has been caught on high-speed camera for the first time lashing out with its stinger, according to scientists.

The deathstalker had the fastest lunge of all, with its venomous stinger snapping over its head like a whip at 130 centimetres (51 inches) per second.
