    My idea: Neutral rideable mobs, were you can ride with a "spider eye on a stick". Right-clicking makes it attack one time, inflicting poison. It could be a little faster than a pig, and greater speed on sand. instead of jumping, it will climb obstacles.
    During daytime, it will fled from the player, unless it have a spider eye or a "spider eye on a stick" in hand (like the cat behavior). During nighttime, it will attack the player unless it have a spider eye item in hand (Like the hoglin behavior).
    Spawns around desert wells, waiting for a thirsty victim.

    Maybe they could replace spiders in deserts, and be poisonous like cave spiders. Also it would be cool if they glowed in the dark with specific light sources, because some scorpions do that irl.

    You get poison 5 if you get stung because real scorpions can be leathal so Minecraft one put you on one heart almost instantly

    I think that Scorpions would be a small update for the desert! The scorpions should then attack you as soon as you get close and should have a very small hitbox. In desert wells, they should appear more often, so that wells also use something! Scorpions could, if you kill them, drop a scorpion sting, which then, combined with a sword, gives players poison! If you had the scorpion stinger just like that in your inventory, it could also poison the player who has it in inventory. Also a chestplate, which combined with the scorpion sting, makes you resistant to attacks with effects. The scorpion sting would then have to be very rare! You could also milk the scorpion, so that you get a bottle of scorpion poison! This could then be used to brew new potions.

    that is a great idea the desert has really nothing dangerous so it will be nice to see the scorpions.

    It would be cool if you attacked it and it would defend itself and it would deal poison and damage

    Meerkats would rip off their stinger which would drop as an item which could be used to make healing potions!
