Guided by nature, we’ve decided to incorporate the telson into our name and image, as we believe it embodies the exact characteristics we want to inspire in people.
A telson is an arthropod’s posterior-most appendage.
The most iconic and well-known telson belongs to the scorpion
We generally refer to it by the name of stinger, and it’s the primary method of catching prey.
In fact, about 25 species of scorpion can inject venom so powerful through their telsons, that they can kill humans.
Another example of a telson is possessed by the mantis shrimp
However, unlike the scorpion, for the mantis shrimp the telson is a method of defense and protection.
The mantis shrimps’ telson is so strong that scientists are using it as a basis to develop lightweight, highly impact-resistant materials.
In essence, the telson embodies the evolution of some the most important facets of survival: the need to hunt, to provide sustenance, the need to defend and to stay safe.
