By: Postbull - Last Upadte August 1, 2018


Yes, you heard it right Scorpion Venom is the most expensive liquid in the world. It costs whopping $39,000,000 per gallon. Scorpion uses its venom to paralyze the prey and themselves from predators.

We, humans, try to make use out of everything. We use this to treat arthritis and to make anti-venoms.

Why is it so expensive?

Because it's extremely difficult to obtain the venom. Electrical stimulation is used to extract it and one yield produces only 0.5 mgs.

To obtain One gallon we would have to use millions of Scorpions which increases their price.

Medicinal uses of Scorpion Venom

Researchers have found that Scorpion’s venom can be used as Painkiller. It is under research and soon will be used to treat cancer.

A synthesized version of scorpion’s venom is also used as an immunosuppressant drug which decreases the chances of rejecting of an external organ in the body during transplantation.

It can also cure Malaria.

These beneficial uses and production in the miniscule amount of Scorpion Venom make it highly expensive.
