Description

I noticed my house cat, Rue, staring at the corner of the wall. I noticed the scorpion and grabbed a glass jar, captured it, took some pictures, and then took it to the back yard and released it away from the house on a log. (The Geotag is of where I released it, just a hundred meters or so from where the house where we found it)

Description from Wikipedia

Scorpions are predatory arthropod animals of the order Scorpiones within the class Arachnida. They have eight legs and are easily recognised by the pair of grasping claws and the narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over the back, ending with a venomous stinger. Scorpions range in size from 9 mm (Typhlochactas mitchelli) to 20 cm (Hadogenes troglodytes).
