    The Scorpion Most People Fear is the Arizona Bark Scorpion

    There are more than 40 species of scorpions in Arizona. The Arizona Bark Scorpion is the only species that is really of concern to most people, since it is the one with powerful enough venom to cause harm as a result of a sting. The Arizona Bark Scorpion isn't very big -- usually no more than three inches in length. They are very common in the Phoenix area. Unfortunately for people who have a fear of scorpions, they don't stay outside; they can be found in many homes around the Valley of the Sun.

    If you have taken a photo of an Arizona scorpion (or your hand or foot after having been stung by a scorpion) and you'd like to submit the picture to this photo gallery, here is how you do it.

    From the photographer: "This scorpion was captured in mid-September 2007. She gave birth while in captivity.

    From the photographer: "Thank you for your article on scorpion stings and how to treat them. I found the information very useful when an Arizona Bark Scorpion so rudely stung my foot earlier this morning. Fortunately I am not having an allergic reaction and only suffer the relentless, intense pain that comes from stings from this species. This scorpion met it's death by shoe shortly after attacking me inside my Youngtown home.

    ...There has been no swelling or discoloration. In fact there's more of a mark on my arm from the tetanus shot than on my toe from the sting. For as much as it hurt you'd think the entire foot would be purple and 3 times it's normal size, but there's been nothing to show for the agony I went through and a day's lost wages. It's been 16 hours now since I was stung, and about 80% of the pain has subsided. Hopefully it'll be all gone by morning, allowing me to wear shoes again."

    From the photographer: "This Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion was captured outside a home just south of South Mountain Park in Phoenix, Arizona. This specimen was placed in a terrarium with a half dozen bark scorpions. The next morning, there was nothing left of the bark scorpions but pinchers and stingers in the sand. I guess they didn't get along. He was later released in onto the South Mountain Park away from homes."

    From the photographer: "I was startled while working on my computer late last night by this 2-1/2" long bark scorpion climbing the wall behind my desk. These are found even here at 3,300 ft. elevation. It's posing nicely on a rock in a small critter box for this picture. Our 2 cats are wonderful scorpion & centipede killers. I sleep well knowing that those creatures don't have a chance to invade our home with the cats on patrol."

She hasn't touched a cricket I gave her, after 2 days there is one baby left. Picture taken with the Sony DSC-T200."

    From the photographer: "Saw this scorpion on the wall and before we said, 'Godspeed my little friend,' my husband fetched a purple tinted glass to transport it outside, and I asked it for a photo shoot. It was a perfect model, of course, in the glass. Sychronicity placed it on top of an art book on the table, entitled, 'The Spiritual in Art: Abstract Painting.' Shut off the flash and used a UV Flashlight instead to shoot the photos." Photo taken on July 5, 2011.
