-Desert Hairy Scorpion-

Hadrurus arizonensis 


-North America's largest scorpions belong to genus Hadrurus. This species is found throughout the Western portion of Arizona, Southern Nevada, Southern California, Southwestern Utah, Western Colorado, and Northwestern Mexico. Their populations seem to be heavily concentrated in the Sonora and Mojave deserts. 


-While these scorpions are large and quickly engage in defensive behavior, the venom they produce is not medically significant. This is a fossorial species, so provide them with plenty of substrate depth and a heat source for thermoregulation. 


-This is among the largest North American scorpions and regularly measure 5-5.5" in total length.
