My First Scorpion


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.
