Many Malibu residents have never seen one, but scorpions are surprisingly common in Malibu and while none of the local species are considered dangerous, they can deliver a painful sting.
Often described as bugs, scorpions are actually arthropods, and are more closely related to spiders than they are to true insects.
Scorpions occasionally turn up inside a house or garage, but most encounters occur outdoors and sting reports tend peak in late summer, when humans are more likely to be outside at night and to go barefoot.
The golden era of roadside attractions is long gone, but there was a time when Cape Cod cottages and Tiki kitsch were a key part of Malibu’s mojo.

In a series of six episodes, five Malibu High School students and competitors on the Malibu Sharks Surf Team will show viewers worldwide what it’s like to be a teen surfer in Malibu.

Purchased from Daniel Forge two years ago by Morris Gerson Family, Inc. — creator of Malibu Cafe at the Calamigos Ranch off of Kanan Road in Malibu — renovations and improvements to the property were halted by a fire that caused $400,000 in damage less than a week after property was sold.
Malibu’s Hunter McIntyre is a hunter through and through.
The moment the 6-foot-2, 178-pound pro obstacle racer steps into a competition, he is sizing up his opponents, picking apart their weaknesses and planning his attack. That mentality was what McIntyre believes set him apart in Season 4 of “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge,” in which the 27-year-old emerged victorious among eight of the top dogs from previous seasons. The show premiered Sunday, Jan. 22, on CMT.
