I'm your Scorpio friend too, baby. ; ) I'll never forget about the one that got loose in my apartment years ago. I kept feeling things in my bed under the covers giving me the creeps; until he was finally found. He was the same type as one in photo. Nice pic!

John, that is really cool.

What are we looking at? (i.e. specific "type?" of scorpion)

I'm pretty sure it's a common stripe tailed scorpion.

Nice pic! I'm glad we don't have to deal with these in Colorado. The snakes are bad enough.

Nice shot!
Last time I was at Red Rocks, I sat in the sand and one came crawling out from under my ass. It was tiny and didn't sting me.

Last time I slept in the Nevada desert, I woke up to find one trapped under my ass and sleeping pad. Not a happy camper for sure.
