Mohave Thorn Scorpion

As you know, we did some desert hiking last week. Well, truth be told, I can not include myself in that word, "we". I personally enjoyed some very sedentary quiet time, which was a blessing to me. I really didn't need the sedentary part of it, but the quiet was very nice.  So anyway, my family goes hiking out there in our wilderness, which has been determined to be safe and snake-less this time of year, and look at this scary creature that hitch-hiked home with them! The dreaded Mohave Thorn Scorpion. Here it is crawling across my kitchen floor, trying to get me!

No, it doesn't bite, or even sting. Actually it's harmless, unless you accidentally sit on it.   It's really a piece of barrel cactus skeleton. (Too bad this isn't April -- this would have made a great April Fool's joke!)


  1. Ha! It's really cool looking though!

  2. Wow! That is pretty scary.

  3. LOL! I was wondering how a scorpion would be a tag-along unawares lol. Very cute :)


    come see my new art ;)
