Arizona Bark Scorpion
This common scorpion is found in the Sonoran Desert, located in the southwest United States and Northwestern Mexico. It is light brown in color, and the adult male can be as big as 8 cm (3.14 inch) long, while the female will be smaller, max length being that of 7 cm.
Bark scorpions are nocturnal, meaning they are awake at night, and their preferred method of diet is hunting/ambushing their prey. They tend to eat crickets, roaches, beetles, or other small insects they come in contact with. Arizona Bark Scorpions can also be cannibalistic, which means they will occasionally feed on a fellow scorpion like themselves.
Bark Scorpions do have predators, a decent variety, too. Birds, reptiles and other invertebrates love scorpions. These include spiders, snakes, peccaries, rodents, and also other scorpions.
Scorpions venom is painful and can be potentially deadly, but it has pretty much zero effect on grasshopper mice. Scientists have even found that the scorpions toxin actually acts like an analgesic to a grasshopper mice instead of a pain stimulant. Scorpion Pest Control Near Me Mesa AZ
