The Scorpion Most People Fear is the Arizona Bark Scorpion

By

There are more than 40 species of scorpions in Arizona. The Arizona bark scorpion is the only species that is really of concern to most people, since it is the one with powerful enough venom to cause harm as a result of a sting. The Arizona bark scorpion isn't very big--usually no more than 3 inches in length. They are very common in the Phoenix area. Unfortunately for people who have a fear of scorpions, they don't stay outside--they can be found in many homes around the Valley of the Sun.

If you have taken a photo of an Arizona scorpion (or your hand or foot after having been stung by a scorpion) and you'd like to submit the picture to this photo gallery, here's how you do it.
