Common yellow scorpion glowing like its radioactive under UV light.

As of right now, no one is 100% sure what chemical causes scorpions to glow like this when hit with a UV flashlight, but the why might have something to do with detecting and hiding from the Sun.

Scorpions are largely nocturnal, and it is believed (also somewhat proven) that the UV sensitivity of their exoskeleton is used like a giant sun-detecting eyeball, where if they sense even a small amount of glow they are prompted to find a darker hiding spot.

Even scorpion fossils glow! Specimens as old as 100 million years have been witnessed glowing under a UV lamp.
