-Arizona Bark Scorpion-

Centruroides sculpturatus 


-This is a medium sized bark scorpion native to th Southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico. Communal tolerance is exhibited in this species, but care should always be taken when co-habitating predatory animals. While they originate from dry, semi-arid environments they seek out shelters where humidity and moisture exist 


-Native to scrubby woodland, riparian regions of sycamore and mesquite groves, rocky formations, dry grassland, and urban developed areas. These scorpions are at home on the ground, hanging inverted under fallen trees or rocks, and scaling vertical surfaes such as tree trunks. These animals benefit from some vertical orientation in their habitat, lots of climbing and hiding areas, flat bark, and a heat source. 


-Adult size for these scorpions is 2.75-3.5" with males typically being a bit longer.
