A fairly large scorpion for the area, maybe 5-6cm
I don't think it is Vaejovis, because of large size and the large pincers
The head of Zzyzx said it's a "Sand Scorpion," but I don't know what genus/species that means.
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).
