This is the southern unstriped scorpion. Sting hurts, but that's all, just a bit painful, nothing to worry about. Quite common throughout the South in rocky areas of the southern Appalachians and one little spot in the Tunica Hills near Saint Francisville, Louisiana, to south of Natchez, Mississippi.

OR maybe this guy was touring America and happened to stop by to shower and freshen up before heading back. Hahha if only.
