Hentz's Striped Scorpion

Centruroides hentzi


The Hentz's Striped Scorpion observed was mostly pale sandy brown in color except for on it's abdomen. On the dorsal side, it was pale black and segmented and on the ventral side it was a lighter white color. The Hentz Striped Scorpion also has a multitude of orange-brown spots on its backside and six segmented walking legs. The scorpion overall was small yet carried a look that is quite intimidating.


The Hentz's Striped Scorpion can generally be found in fields and woodland edges.
