What Kind Of Scorpion Is That?
Most people in Arizona assume that all scorpions are the same----that, however, is not the case. In Arizona you will find the Arizona Bark Scorpion, Arizona Giant Hairy Scorpion, Arizona Stripetail Scorpion, and the Yellow Ground Scorpion.
The Arizona Stripetail Scorpion, Vaejovis Spinigerus, is easy to distinguish from all other scorpions found in Arizona because it is robust, with a lustrous metasoma, and the keels have an underlying pigment—where it gets its name. The dorsal keels are spine bearing, hence where it gets the name Spinigerus. The hands of the scorpion are smooth, and often times the palm is inflated.
The color of this scorpion does range from light yellow all the way to brown, and can have dark stripes along it’s dorsum. The stripes form a somewhat “horned” appearance. The females can easily reach 70 mm, but most are found to be around 60 mm (3 inches).
