Striped Bark Scorpion

Centruroides vittatus


Found in my aunt's bathroom in New Mexico. It is a young one but it still stung. Ii has been verified as a Striped Bark Scorpion. Thank you Rich from (


Under brush, logs, in buildings, the desert, etc. They especially show up when new construction of houses or buildings occur which disturbs their burrows in the ground.
