Scorpions are monsters that can be found at the Al Kharid Mine, north of Al Kharid, as well as Musa Point, the Dwarven Mine, and the Wilderness all as level 39. They attack primarily with ranged. They are aggressive toward players until Combat level 49 and are therefore a nuisance and a danger to low-level players training Mining. You should be ready to run if your combat level is under 30, because the attacks are very accurate, even through full plate armour. The deadliest scorpions free players will face are the scorpions in the Stronghold of Security (level 37 and 38). They are also found caged in the Ardougne Zoo and are good training for low level mages and rangers, though care should be taken as they can range players right back. Level 37 scorpions also look slightly different in colour than the other scorpions.
Scorpions in the Al-Kharid Mines are popular with level 30's to level 70's for training.
Since the EOC update, the scorpions in the Dwarven Mine are no longer aggressive to lower-levelled players, however the King Scorpion is still aggressive.

- In Postbag from the Hedge 40, Nurmof says that the reason scorpions are at nearly every mining spot in Runescape is that they enjoy eating Scorpionite, much like how Dragons enjoy eating runite.
- In the early days of RuneScape 2, scorpions had the same sound set as rats.
