Centruroides vittatus

This scorpion of the genus Centruroides is found in Texas, New mexico, Colorado and other adjoining states. Centruroides vittatus are known as Striped Bark Scorpions. This species is not considered medically significant. They are identified by their long thin pincers, long thin tail, dark pattern on face, and their habit of holding their tail laying on it's side when the animal is at rest. We are lucky to have a photo of this species of Texas, New Mexico and Colorado Scorpion thanks to Ryan.
