Vaejovis spinigerus

Vaejovis spinigerus is a small scorpion from the southwestern United States. The individual pictured is a juvenile I found in central Arizona. You can find them under rocks and debris. I was in Tucson once with someone who stepped on one in a motel room, at 3 AM. I am sorry to say this incident resulted in the only death I know of from stepping on a scorpion in the United States. The scorpion died. They are easy to keep and eat crickets readily. I have fed the young flightless fruitflies. HOME
