Found in the claw-old rock about 390 million years, which suggested to scientists that the ancient creatures, insects, spiders, such as cancers and others, were much greater than was previously thought, according to a noted science professor at the University of Bristol Alahath, Simon Brady.

Brady said Tuesday: "It is surprising discovery", according to the Associated Press.

He said science professor at the Academy Alahath "Freiberga Kening" in South-East Germany, Jorg Schneider said the study provides updated information and value on "another giant scorpions."

He added Schneider, who was not among the group participating in the study: "These scorpions were prevalent throughout millions of years because he had no enemies in nature at that time .. but eventually extinct by the emergence of a giant fish removal and teeth
