Centruroides vittatus - female Unknown Scorpion - Centruroides vittatus

Man I lov3 scorpions! I went to Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Utah, South Dakota, and Arizona last summer. In Arizona, I didnt see one, but the year b4 that we saw a scorpion as big as a toy dumptruck! It was HUGE! Nice pic!

Centruroides vittatus
Yes, definitely Centruroides vittatus, and a good example of how beautiful they are in the Texas Hill Country (Austin/San Antonio region).

An educated guess...
Centruroides vittatus (Buthidae), maybe? Or at least some Centruroides sp.
