A huge monster in the form of a bark scorpion.

Giant bark scorpions, the colossal cousins of bark scorpions, are found in savage deserts, like giant desert scorpions, but in most savage tropical biomes as well.

Giant bark scorpions are slightly larger than a giant desert scorpions, but their sting is far less dangerous, inducing only pain (that still can knock out a dwarf). They also do not roam in groups of three like giant desert scorpions usually do, and are not building destroyers. They are generally non-aggressive, though they can and will kill lone civilians if they become agitated.

It has been observed that these scorpions have unbelievable healing ability, being able to recover completely within a month without any scarring from severe wounds like fractured carapaces with at least 6 different broken parts. It is not clear if this ability is exclusive to giant bark scorpions.

In what appears to be a copy/paste bug, giant bark scorpions are not immune to bark scorpion venom, but cave spiders are.
