huge scorpion, nearly 10cm (3.5inches) spotted with UV light, second photo under LED light
desert, rocky, dry
I spent 3 days camping in the Tatacoa desert in southern Colombia. Was an amazing place. Two nights I went out scorpion hunting with my UV light and spotted 7 scorpions the first night and 3 the second. I didn´t go out as long on the second night. These were all within a 5 minute walk of my tent. I have many more photos of them but they internet is fairly slow here, so I am only uploading these 2 for now.
