Forest Scorpions Genus Uroctonus

Description

This scorpion was found in a redwood forest under a rock. It measured about one and one half inches to 2 inches, though I didn't make sure. It was dark brown on most of it's exo-skeleton except for a few places: the stinger was a much lighter shade of brown, as were the legs; finally it's underbelly was within the realm of a very, very light tan to almost white with about 6 darker spots going down it's belly. There was only one in the area that we could see.

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).

No range data available.
