Bark Scorpion

Centruroides sculpturatus


Small scorpion that glows under a black light.


Found these every night in all of the campgrounds we stayed in as we rafted down the Grand Canyon.

I don't know. My son brought it on the trip. These scorpions are are a problem for those camping along the river. Often finding their way into peoples bedding, clothes and shoes. Stings are common.
