    Possibly. That would be a pleasant surprise I think they are both females.

    Thanks Joseph! Just curious, but how common are scorps in Tucson? You have access to some really cool ones there(think the one you posted is the biggest in NA) I bet if I lived where you lived I'd be keeping quite a few. Think vinegaroons occur round you also.

    Yes, except in winter, it is usually quite easy to find them under rocks and boards in the daytime. We also have the most dangerous species in North America (though they say there hasn't been a fatality in the U.S. for 40 years), the bark scorpion, Centruroides exilicauda, but it is not nearly as common as the stripe-tailed, Vaejovis spinigeris.

    Estimates vary, but they say we have 20-60 species of scorpion, here in our area. Myself, I am only able to identify these three. And I have only seen a few specimens of the "Giant Hairy Scorpion" for the first time, this year. But I've never gone out just to look for them. They just show up quite frequently, so I just keep my eyes open whenever I'm moving anything that's been lying on the ground.

    I've only just now decided to keep one of the "Giant Hairy Scorpions" for a while, to observe it. They are fascinating creatures.

    most of the lil scorpion species such as the Vaejovis are a pain to tell apart. very cool critters, been thinking of tracking down a Hadrurus for awhile.

    Wow 40 or so species! Here in CA we have what they call the eutylenum complex that lives around me(got a mini taxonomy lesson trying to ID one I found).

    Are you able to find vinegaroons? Now those are weird.
