It doesnt look like I can use PhotoBucket to share pics on here...So the Scorpion in question is now my Avatar.
Is this an Adult? He is a boy,right? What kind of Centruroid is he?
Thanks for any help....

I'm not good with ID's so I can't help, but for photobucket all you need is the IMG Code

It's hard to tell from the avatar, but if I had to guess I'd say C. sculpturatus(exilicauda). If you caught them in Az, then it's pretty much a sure bet. Males are easy to distinguish from females just by looking at the metasomal(tail) segments. The males have long skinny segments, and females have shorter thicker segments.

You should be able to post pictures from photobucket just fine. Copy and paste the html code straight into your post.

Cheers and welcome!

Underneath the image on photobucket you should get 4 different codes:

Email & Im
Direct Link
Html code
Img code

if you hover over the pics it will come up or if you click on the pic to open in full screen it should be next to it.
Then all you do is copy and paste the image code into your post. Smile

If its the app your using then you have to select the picture and and then in the bottom right corner there is an " i "click that and you get the 4 codes upthe img code is the bottom one if you touch/click it it will automatically copy for you Smile

What Bex said . . . you need the image code. The final product should look like

[ img ] http://photobucket.com/your account/your picture.jpg [ / img ]

without the spaces.

All I can tell from your avatar is that it's a female.

That looks like a Bark Scorpion to me although I'm not an expert. From what I have read online characteristics unique to the Bark Scorpion are that they normally curl their tails to the side when resting. They like to climb & are commonly found hanging upside down vertically on walls or trees. I believe they are the only Scorpions found native to Arizona that can climb vertically up walls & in my case I found one in my Apartment which is on the second floor. They also have small claws & are the most venomous scorpion in North America. Generally speaking the larger the claw the less dangerous the venom. They normally won't sting humans unless stepped on & are more likely to hide than attack but I wouldn't recommend trying to handle it. The Bark Scorpion is the most commonly found in & around dwellings in the Sonoran Desert (AZ). If you are interested in keeping it as a pet I would recommend getting a 5 to 10 gallon glass aquarium as they can't climb glass & create a desert type environment. Check out these links to help identify species as well.

I'm a new on Scorpion so I don't know what spices or sub-spices but it looks like a female to me by its thicker tail but I could be wrong. Sorry I couldn't help any more then that.

Salt and pepper are always basic spices, all others are to finetune the dish!
Usually males have longer (bigger) tails on this species?
