No, not in the house again. Thankfully it has been over a month since I’ve caught the last scorpion. These scorpions can be found in the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa, Arizona.

David and I visited the museum last month with friends and family (we had a great visit!) and I snapped these pictures then. If these were the actual size of the Praearcturus gigas (scorpions) back in the Devonian Era (three feet in length!), I’m glad I only have to deal with Arizona Bark Scorpions!

  1. Do you suppose they would fit under your door or down your vents?

  2. I was just thinking that – at least you’d know they were under the rug 😉
