About 6 cm long, probably a young one.
Baja California Bark Scorpion
Another scorpion, this time right out of the woodpile. It got smashed before I took the picture. My dog was around and I was wearing open shoes. :-(
I found it in the parking lot of my grandma's house. She wasn't to happy when I brought it in the house with me.
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).
