ARIZONA STRIPEDTAIL SCORPION

Arizona Stripedtail Scorpions Paravaejovis spinigerus (formerly Vaejovis spinigerus and Hoffmannius vaejovis) are very common in the deserts of Arizona. These are venomous but not considered dangerously so to people with normal reactions (more like a bee sting). Handling is definitely not recommended. They are aggressive in defending themselves and in pursuing their prey.
