what kind of scorpion is this ? - Paruroctonus boreus
boysen state park, Fremont County, Wyoming, USA
May 27, 2007
Size: 4 cm with tail curled
I found several of these scorpions over the memorial day weekend. i had 3 But the largest specimen ate the smaller 2. I found them in central Wyoming and haven't been able to find out what kind they are. they live in a sandy enviroment and burrow under pieces of wood. any help with finding out what kind they are and if they are dangerous to humans if stung would be much appreciated.
