In the ten years I’ve lived in New Mexico I’ve heard about people finding scorpions in their houses. I’ve never seen any, not in my house or even outdoors. I was quite surprised to see this guy out in the open, in the middle of the night.
I don’t think this particular scorpions is unusually large or small, seems to be about average from what I have seen. I gotta admit, it’s got me a little jittery. I know all the clutter I have around here just provides a place for critters like this to live. There’s one other thing that I haven’t seen that others have, centipedes. As long as I find them before they find me.
